Tate , a long-time barbershop owner, and Ace, his ex-con friend, hang out with their Fairfax neighborhood customers and buddies when the invariable police frustrations crop up after two cops chase a black kid into the shop.
“Black and Blue Rhapsody,” a 2-act drama, by Richard Asbury, presents community relations issues, the problems, attitudes, perceptions and behaviors between African American residents and the police, which hopes to offer possible solutions to improve interactions between the two groups.
Tate, nearing retirement, Ace, struggling at work, Mary Ellen, the optimistic mail carrier, Vincent – X, the enthusiastic Muslim, the police and neighborhood black kids share their views, attitudes, beliefs and perspectives on politics, police and African-American community relations which cause the characters to ask the audience, “What do you think?”
