Spinning Into Butter by Rebecca Gilman
November 22, 24, and December 7
Set on a college campus, Spinning reveals the truth about institutional racism, and the stilted reaction to it. The play exposes the political “correctness” of authoritative figures who claim to be pro-minority but manage to ignore the elephant in the room.
Flyin’ West by Pearl Cleage
November 23 & December 6, 8
In this drama, four African American women escape their pasts as former slaves by moving to the harsh western plains. There they face bitter winters, trials of bigotry, domestic abuse, and the controversy of interracial marriage.
Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw
Henry Higgins pompously bets he can transform a poor Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, into a duchess by coaching her in proper English speech. Pygmalion’s undertones criticize differences in class during the early 1900′s and remark on ideas concerning independent women.
