The Real McCoy
Andrew Moodie's latest play tells the tale of inventor Elijah McCoy (1843-1929), whose name became a byword for quality, as in "the real McCoy." The play explains why we've never heard of McCoy and reclaims a fascinating man's life from undeserved obscurity. No one believed a black man could be an engineer; nevertheless, McCoy devised a solution to one of the greatest problems facing steam locomotion.
