In A Question of Color, playwright Michael Bettencourt tells an early-20th-century love story that, like so many in American history, is made painfully complicated by laws maintaining racial segregation. You see, John loves Susan, and Susan loves John, but John is white, and Susan is black. The play tells the story of John and Susan's illegal marriage and its repercussions in a small town in the North Carolina piedmont. David Hallatt, a regular in the Charleston theatrical scene, will direct a two-week run of the play at the Footlight Players starting Sept. 21. The production will feature Bettencourt's lyrical dialogue as well as sections of a capella singing as John and Susan navigate the political injustices of their time with the help of Aunt Becky, who helps them set up a household.
