Fridays and Saturdays, September 20-October 5, 2013: Just Old Men Talking
Written by Grady L. Mackey III and directed by Sharon L. Graine, Just Old Men Talking focuses on four elderly black men from Bluffhill, Alabama, engaging in conversation and expounding on the “talk of the time,” their younger years and the world today. People of African descent, in particular, have a strong oral tradition, telling stories as a way to pass on information from one generation to the next. And, as one audience member summed it up, “the nuanced exchange between characters, the knowing glances, the meaningful head tilts, this was how the stories were told and these actors deliver -- masterfully!”

In this NAACP Award-nominated production, written and directed by Sharon L. Graine, the supremely talented Ms. Suzanne Nichols delivers an uncanny portrayal of the naughty, yet vulnerable, Eartha Kitt!
