This paper compares three plays, William W. Brown's "Leap for Freedom", Eugene O'Neill's "All God's Chillun Got Wings" and Adrienne Kennedy's "Funnyhouse of a Negro". All these plays deal with miscegenation in some way. The conclusion draws on the postmodern difference theories of Jacques Derrida to illustrate why miscegenation is such a large issue, as well as one difficult to portray in a theatrical medium.
