Returning to Pearl

We still have two weeks left in our run of Rebecca Gilman’s Blue Surge (and there are some tickets left!), but we’re already starting to get excited about revisiting 2007 featured playwright Pearl Cleage.

In less than two weeks, we’ll begin rehearsals for A Song for Coretta, a beautiful play about five women who gather in the rain outside the Ebenezer Baptist Church to pay their respects for the late Coretta Scott King. As each woman shares her reasons for being here, Pearl Cleage explores the impact that Mrs. King had on their lives, and the connections that they build with one another through her memory and legacy.

The rehearsal process begins with an Open First Rehearsal – a unique, behind-the-scenes that includes a few words from Artistic Director Nathaniel Swift (that’s me) and Director Sarah Moeller, presentations from the technical design team, and the cast’s first read-through of the script. This is a free event, and a great opportunity to meet the artists and hear their ideas.

Here are the details – I hope you can join us and help us kick off this journey!

Open First Rehearsal
Monday, May 4th at 7:00 pm
