John Henry Redwood's world premiere drama, "No Niggers, No Jews, No Dogs," is as stark and startling as its title. Its realistic portrayal of the effect of bigotry on one family's well being is a history lesson well worth retelling. Redwood's play takes place on a backwoods porch in North Carolina circa 1949, but the story serves as a microcosm of the racial prejudice and social unrest that was prevalent during that time.
