See Things of Dry Hours for as little as $32.50*!

“DELROY LINDO is SUPERB. Things of Dry Hours is a stark, complex drama filled with rich imagery and laced with dark humor. ” – Associated Press

“Four stars! A gorgeously written and philosophically rich celebration sharing this little known chapter of history.”Time Out NY

A passionate, intimate, historical reclamation of the little-known intersection of Southern racism and the black-led Communist Party in ’30s Alabama. Directed with robust beauty. ” – Newsday

“Garret Dillahunt is compelling” – AP

“Roslyn Ruff combines a vast intelligence and a deep sensuality.”- Newsday

New York Theatre Workshop presents

Things of Dry Hours

Written by Naomi Wallace

Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson

Featuring Garret Dillahunt, Delroy Lindo, Roslyn Ruff

Naomi Wallace’s Things of Dry Hours marks the return to the New York stage of famed stage and screen star Delroy Lindo, who received Tony Award and Drama Desk nominations for his last Broadway appearance in the original Joe Turner’s Come and Gone. Lindo is joined on stage by OBIE Award-winner Roslyn Ruff, who just earned rave reviews for her performance in Athol Fugard’s Coming Home at Long Wharf and Garret Dillahunt (No Country for Old Men). Set in Depression-era Alabama, Things of Dry Hours tells the story of Tice Hogan (Lindo), an African American out-of-work Sunday school teacher and member of the Communist Party, and his daughter Cali (Ruff) whose lives get turned upside down when they take in a mysterious white factory worker (Dillahunt) on the run. Tony Award-winning actor, writer and producer Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Lackawanna Blues, Seven Guitars) directs.
