THE HOUSE THAT WILL NOT STAND
by Marcus Gardley
directed by Thomas W. Jones II
Desire. Jealousy. Murder. Voodoo.
Beartrice—a free woman of color—and her three unwed daughters face changing racial divides and an uncertain future in the hot New Orleans summer of 1813 after the mysterious death of her white lover. A sensuous, humorous and bewitching family drama of love and survival told in a rich and lyrical river of words, music and dance. 2019 Obie Award-Winner.
By the writer of the upcoming new musical film version of The Color Purple.
