Ted’s new play “The Journals of Osborne P. Anderson,” which he wrote and directed, is currently performing in Los Angeles through June 28th. The play is about John Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry in 1859 in an attempt to free the slaves of Virginia and the black men who fought alongside him. Harper’s Ferry is considered by many to be the catalyst for Southern secession which ultimately led to the Civil War. The play combines Lange’s signature drama and comedy as it peels away traditional stereotypes prevalent in the South before the Civil War. He educates audiences with vivid characters and historical facts from the rarely told black perspective. He said that the play is relevant to the events in Baltimore, Ferguson and other cities in that the players may have changed since 1859 but that the game is still the same.
