Heart of Blackness

Oliver, Edith
February 1971
New Yorker;2/6/1971, Vol. 46 Issue 51, p72
The article features Ed Bullins' play, "In New England Winter." The play depicts anger, violence, passion, wit and humor, tenderness, and mystery. The plot revolves around two uncomfortable households; the first in a city apartment in 1960 and the second in a house in a snowbound New England town in 1955. There is considerable friction of one kind or another in both households forcing Steve Benson, a character common to both households, to run away.
