This play is loosely based on interviews with those men. However, the rattlesnakes refused to comment.https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/amiri-baraka

When I finished 'Joshua Limbo' I was referred to Baraka's play about a black man and white woman riding a subway as they battled each other's racial divide underground in NYC - a great symbolic device for the piece as 'subterranean' prejudice rising up from the underworld. 'JL,' is also about two people, one black and one white, trapped in a desert shack as this website will delve into on different pages. For anyone interested in his back story please visit the article. Thanks
