A group of mostly black actors gather at a theater to read through a fictional play called Killing Flo by a schizophrenic white writer-director.


The Progress Bulletin newspaper praised the 1976 premiere staging of the play calling it an "offbeat and hilarious black satire with a zinging performance by Ron Thompson."[2]

When the play was later performed in 1986 the Los Angeles Times wrote "The voice of a keenly observant satirist is heard throughout "Buy the Bi and Bye," at the Richmond Shepard. Yet Felton Perry's play isn't as sharp as it must have been 10 years ago at Los Angeles Actors' Theatre."[3][4]
