November 9 • 8:00 pm - December 16 • 8:00 pm$25 – $45
The Fountain Theatre presents the West Coast Premiere of Freight: The Five Incarnations of Abel Green by Howard L. Craft, directed by Joseph Megel. In this acclaimed solo play, J. Alphonse Nicholson (P-Valley, They Cloned Tyrone, Broadway’s A Soldier’s Play) embodies five incarnations of Abel Green, an African American “Everyman,” as he travels through time as many selves, from a 19th Century minstrel to a fallen 21st Century securities trader. In each life, Abel is guided, distracted, helped, or hindered by a handful of characters with whom his destiny is forever intertwined.
