“Sometimes despite your best efforts, you are part of the problem; and it’s impossible to see from your point of view; so come see it from someone else’s,” said Antonio Scales, who plays Lt. Stokes and is the play’s co-director. “Le Chat Noir shines a spotlight on a societal failing with American Son.“
