Slow Dance the Killing Ground

“The play Slow Dance On The Ground, written by the late William Hanley, is staged in a candy store downtown Brooklyn—catering to meat-delivering truck drivers. Glas–a German Jew, a communist, and owner of the shop is on the run–having fled German when Stalin, leader of the communist world, reached his Pact with Hitler. Glas left his son and wife under the iron fist of madman Hitler.

The eighteen-year-old Randall, a black genius, barrels through the door of the candy store on the run from the police. He has killed his prostitute mom. Twenty-year-old Rose, a Jew, pregnant, is on the run–in search of an abortion clinic. She collapses as she pushes through the door.   In Glas’ candy shop, the three do a SLOW DANCE with the life and death–swarming around them as they move about in life–on the RUN.”
