Imitation of Life: New Stage Adaptation of Fannie Hurst's Novel
Known for its ground-breaking, if controversial, depiction of sexism and racism in 1930s Chicago, Fannie Hurst's popular novel of the era comes to life on stage in John Ruffin's new adaptation for Broadway in Bronzeville. Also turned into a famed 1959 melodrama by Douglas Sirk, Imitation of Life tells the story of a young white widow with an infant daughter, who hires a black woman and her fair-skinned daughter as domestics in exchange for room and board. Combining their cooking and business talents, the women strike it rich in the restaurant game, though issues with their offspring threaten their happiness.
