Fetch Clay, Make Man is a sharp and crisp play that details an odd and intimate relationship.  It is between a man at the end of a career and one whose career was on the launching pad.  A man who was a Catholic and a man who was a recent convert to Islam.  A man who took painful stereotypes of African Americans and turned them to his advantage and a man who took those painful stereotypes and threw them off in disgust.
