An innocent young boy accidentally discovers his father's secret collection of X-rated video tapes in comedian Andrew Goffman's The Accidental Pervert. The boy watches the tapes, of course, leading him to grow up addicted to porn. In this show, Goffman takes you along on a hilarious and self-deprecating journey through a world of video vixens, X-rated fantasies and dirty movies that he discovered at age 11 and that controlled him until age 26, the year he met his wife.

This play was mighty powerful. It didn't dwell on the myriad of physical atrocities of Jim Crow as most docudramas usually do. Instead, it focused more on the permanent, emotional scars of African-American families left by this racist system throughout our Southern states. The acting was superb & each actor displayed deep passion for his/her convictions in the play, whether Black or KKK, right or wrong. It gave the audience plenty of food for thought. Simply put, well done!

Conversation with a Kleagle ... Interview With a KKK Recruiter
by Rudy Gray
directed by Robert Hunkele
This is the 3rd production of this extraordinary play produced at 13th St Rep.
In the late 1920s, a time when the lynching of black men is an accepted and widespread form of racial oppression, a black Chicago journalist travels to the deep South to interview a Kleagle, a recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan. The reporter, passing for white, aims to change American public opinion, which has tolerated—often supported—Klan terror. But first he must succeed in his deception—and survive. However, his true racial identity is discovered by the Klan. This play is about this moment. It is based on the experiences of Walter White, who went on to lead the NAACP as Executive Secretary from 1931 until his death in 1955.
The show runs 90 minutes with a 10-minute intermission.
