“A monumental work whose time has finally come.”

Broadway, 1957.  In rehearsals for a groundbreaking racially integrated production, the leading actress must choose between the role of a lifetime or compromising her values, in this dramatic comedy penned by a real-life groundbreaker.

As the first African American woman to have her work professionally produced on the New York stage, Alice Childress lived this story and tells it true.

Nominated for four Tony Awards.
