proudly presents

The nation misread him. The prison enraged him. His art expressed him.
His woman believed him. His poetry saved him.
A Man in Progress

Written and Performed by Iyaba Ibo Mandingo
Directed by Brent Buell
"unFRAMED puts the art front and center: Mandingo uses painting, poetry, prose and song to tell a story that echoes the lives of many.” – Times Herald Record

“One of the most powerful, sometimes funny, often angry but ultimately life-affirming shows I've ever seen! GO EXPERIENCE IT!!!” –
Frank Lowell, WTBQ

"Iyaba IS a true work of art -- a powerful poet, painter and performer (among many other things); that raw/rare breed whose naked truth shatters long-held myths about life inAmerica. Real deal." -
Forrest McClendon, 2011 Tony Award Nominee, The Scottsboro Boys
