Seven pioneer women gather to socialize as they sew a quilt in Quilters. A quilt comes together scrap by scrap, piece by piece, in this unique expression of folk art where each patch makes up a facet -- girlhood, marriage, childbirth, spinsterhood, twisters, fire, illness and death -- of a complete tableau. Quilters, a musical with book, music and lyrics by Barbara Damashek, was nominated for the Tony Award for best musical of 1985 and has been a popular favorite in theaters across the country.

Quotes & Highlights
“Critic’s Choice: Lamb’s Players Theatre and director Robert Smyth roll out a production that feels rooted in the soil and soul of the civil-rights-era South. A mix of homespun humor and spiritual heft goes to the heart of Dennis Hassell’s gospel-laced drama.” —San Diego Union-Tribune_ _

This sweeping American story features a multi-talented cast of 17, bringing to life more than 40 characters in a charged Southern landscape. Clarence Jordan, author of The Cotton Patch Gospel_, started Koinonia Farm, an unconventional racially-integrated community in the 1940s whose legacy includes the start of Habitat for Humanity. Associate Artist Dennis Hassell (_A Divine Comedy) gives us an epic new play filled with passion, humor, and stirring music.
