At South Coast Rep, glimmers of light in 'Little Black Shadows'

Colis (Giovanni Adams) and Toy (Chauntae Pink) are the young black slaves who shadow two white children, Daniel (Daniel Bellusci), a young, diffident flute player who cares little about the rough life of his family’s Georgia cotton plantation, and Mittie (Emily Yetter), his conniving Southern belle sister. Colis and Toy tend to Daniel’s and Mittie’s every need, dressing them in the morning and accompanying them throughout the day.
