Freight: The Five Incarnations of Abel Green StreetSigns in association with New Dog

About the show

Freight: The Five Incarnations of Abel Green tells the story of an African American male who exists in five dimensions of the same universe at different points in American history. In each incarnation- minstrel, cult leader, FBI informant, struggling actor, out-of-work mortgage broker- Abel finds himself stuck somewhere between the American dream and the American nightmare. We witness the trials of a simple man trying to make decisions that will allow him to survive  in what the great African American poet Claude McKay referred to as "this cultured hell that tests my youth." First New York outing.
