Two Old BlackGuys Just Sitting Around Talking brings together two of Houston’s veteran actors, Wayne DeHart and Alex Morris, who take us into a sometimes raw, sometimes gritty, yet always funny conversation between two aging friends; their brotherly relationship complicated by their age-old rivalry for the love of the same woman.
If you’ve ever eavesdropped on your elders’ conversations you know some of them can be pretty candid and laced with a few embellishments, yet chalked full of wisdom.
Both Wayne DeHart and Alex Morris, a former Alley Theatre company member, have a career spanning more than 30 years in stage, television, and film. Both men also began performing during the early years of The Ensemble Theatre and during the life of its late founder George W. Hawkins.
The career paths of Morris and DeHart have many similarities and even intersect at several points, leaving one to conclude that each will bring a great deal of authenticity to the characters they play.
