Presented by the UD Theatre Program and guest artist Hope Road Youth & Community Theater. It’s October 1929, the last year of the delirious Jazz Age, just days after the stock market crash, and — some would come to believe — the beginning of the end of the Harlem Renaissance.  A’lelia Walker, the “Joy Goddess of Harlem,” wants to keep the party going in her towering brownstone on Striver’s Row. Last Night in Harlem is an immersive party play, with music, dancing and food. Come draped down in your righteous rags and cut a rug with artists, intellectuals, celebrities and other “New Negroes," including Langston Hughes, W. E. B. Dubois, Zora Neale Hurston, Jack Johnson and Louie Armstrong. This immersive theatre experience is a fundraiser for Hope Road.
