“…IT HAS A VIRTUE OF GUT, URGENCY AND NECESSITY…UNADORNED HONESTY…”
Edward Albee

by Shay Youngblood
Directed by Thomas W. Jones II

In Odessa Blue’s neighborhood café, three generations of a Black southern family share a passion for activism, art, and following your heart. But they don’t always agree on the methods, especially when their protests threaten their freedom and safety. In this expansive, timely, and magical comedy-drama, the Blue family faces a crossroads. Only together can they find the courage to stand up for their beliefs as they redefine what makes a family and what holds it together.
