Psychologist & Talk Show Host Dr. Brenda:
is the window to the soul" quotes the German philosopher Rudolph
Steiner. This artistic window into our inner being is wide open in the
current Lorraine Hansberry Theater production, Blue Orange, in San
Francisco. The play features the gifted film and TV actor Carl Lumbly.
Over lunch this week Mr. Lumbly shared a bit with me about his
character, Christopher, an African-Brit man who may be sane, or not? Two
Anglo psychiatrists attempt to help him, or not? And one or both of
them may be racist, or not?
an insistent power Blue Orange unfolds in a mental hospital in London
challenging us to look about us and within us. Lumbly's description of
Christopher's longing for a nice green place with palm trees, touches
one of the great issues confronting we cement and steel enclosed urban
dwellers. Research shows that an environment lacking 'natural energy'
promotes 'environmental psychosis'. Perhaps this is why Lumbly states
that on any given day he himself feels a little crazy. As he spoke about
what drew him to this part, he related his own process of grieving the
passing of his much loved wife, 19 months ago. Lumbly compared his own
struggles with those of his character. "Christopher made sense to me,"
believe Christopher will make sense to you as well and ultimately will
help us all to make sense of ourselves and our lives. I was deeply moved
by the story and the potent mixture of threat and vulnerability in Mr.
Lumbly's portrayal of Christopher. He brought to mind many of the day
treatment patients I worked with many years ago and frankly, the way I
feel when a humdinger life lesson presents itself. You know what I mean,
a great evening of entertainment grab your tickets now for Blue Orange!
Be sure to linger in the Lorraine Hansberry Theatre's lovely salon for
after theater drinks and conversation, you will have plenty to hash out
after Blue Orange. Visit www.lhtsf.org for your tickets and more details.

As the San Francisco Bayview Newspaper shares news of the Oakland International Film Festival and its enlightening moments, the newspaper also points out some "inconvenient truth" affecting San Francisco and the Bay Area. The death of Alex Nieto, racism in construction, Rainbow P.U.S.H. & digital divide, and other stories demonstrate the San Francisco Bay Area should take a serious look at itself…As the old word on the street saying goes…."You better check yourself before you wreck yourself."
