Flyin' West is Atlanta playwright Pearl Cleage's critically praised true story of four female former slaves who travel from the South to the West after the Civil War in search of a better life. This incredible, lesser-known slice of American history examines this small group of black women who settled the first all-black town of Nicodemus, Kansas, in the late 1800s. Overcoming tremendous odds, they brave the untamed frontier, brutal winters and other challenges to build this town that's a historic national landmark today. Learn More

Great cast, set, lights, sound, script, direction, costumes... I'm not Jewish but completely identified with the socio-political struggles this family faces. It reminded me of another "Brighten Beach Memoirs" family in 1946 Brooklyn... (I parked across the street for $2 instead of paying the $10 parking fee at the Performing Arts Center)
Quotes & Highlights
- "...beautifully crafted play about love, family lost and found... touches our heart." --<em>Wall Street Journal</em>
- "...a deeply personalized study of sisterhood, family and a crisis of faith. Moving among her characters and shifting back and forth in time, the playwright draws a comprehensive portrait of a family devastated by war." --<em>The New York Times</em>
A Poignant Tale with Universal Appeal
By Barbara Lebow
Two sisters separated during childhood, one a survivor of Nazi concentration camps, the other brought up as an American, are reunited in New York City in 1946 after a separation of almost 20 years. A drama of wrenching feeling and great beauty, it not only evokes the devastation of the Holocaust, but it goes beyond to become a universal portrayal of a family filled with conflict and emotion. It is a powerful and emotionally charged tale of sustenance, hope, and the belief that from a broken and bitter past, a better future may be born.
