Playwright Lisa Schlesinger’s “back porch blues play” transports audiences to turn of the 20th century American South, where the lives of the haves and have-nots collide and converge as composer Ben Schmidt’s contemporary blues tunes move in and out of reality and dreams in a tale as old as time. Directed by Shana Gozansky, this play, at turns classical and hip, asks the perennial question: how can we know where we belong?

Commentary

“I hadn’t seen a piece that unique and well done in a very long time. I was in awe by the use of the space as well as the subtle, yet haunting direction. Thank you all for this wonderful night of theater under the stars.”
