"...sparked an intense curiosity in me..." —Roma Torre, NY1 "Dr. Du Bois and Miss Ovington was wonderful. Coss has achieved an excellent depiction of two compelling characters -- dialogue, pacing, tone -- and as history! The play is all his biographer could wish for as a fitting tribute." —David Levering Lewis, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning W. E. B. Du Bois (Vol. 1 & 2) "...an engaging and deeply moving play." - Susan Hall, Berkshire Fine Arts About the Author: Playwright Clare Coss’s Dr. Du Bois and Miss Ovington produced by Woodie King, Jr’s New Federal Theatre in association with Castillo Theatre in 2014, starring Kathleen Chalfant and Tim Robinson, directed by Gabrielle Kurlander, was recently published by Broadway Play Publishing, Inc.

Taking My Place In Time was a co-production with New Federal Theatre and The Women’s Project. Her play, Emmett, Down in My Heart, directed by Erica Gould, will open at Castillo Theatre on April 17. Inspired by the 1955 lynching of African-American Chicago boy Emmett Till for wolf-whistling at a white woman in the Mississippi Delta, this iconic story, set in the context of white silence and responsibility, calls up our nation’s on-going struggle for justice. She is currently at work on Emmett Till, an opera, with composer Mary Watkins. Coss is a member of the League of Professional Theatre Women, Dramatists Guild, and PEN.

Unexpectedly alone in the office, Dr. Du Bois submits his resignation, which will crash the organization. W.E.B. Dubois, African-American visionary leader and Mary Ovington, white progressive activist, reach across the color line and confront their desire for each other: they spar, reveal secrets, clash, and compete to save their vital work for justice and equality.

Short biography
Stieg Larsson (15 August 1954 - 9 November 2004) was a Swedish journalist and writer, active in left wing politics. He was born in Skelleftehamn outside Skellefteå, Sweden as Karl Stig-Erland Larsson. He is notable for his authorship of the Millennium series of crime novels which are being successfully published posthumously. Larsson was initially a political activist for the Kommunistiska Arbetareförbundet (Communist Workers League), a photographer, and one of Sweden's leading science fiction fans. In politics he was the editor of the Swedish Trotskyist journal Fjärde internationalen. He also wrote regularly for the weekly Internationalen. As a science fiction fan, he was co-editor or editor of several fanzines, including Sfären, Fijagh! and others; in 1978-1979 he was President of the largest Swedish science fiction fan club, Skandinavisk Förening för Science Fiction (SFSF). Larsson worked as a graphic designer at the largest Swedish news agency, Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå (TT) between 1977 and 1999. Larsson died in Stockholm at the age of 50 of a massive heart attack.
