The show was focussed on the experiences of pioneer women and the importance of quilting in their lives and stories. It was well done and I found the stories easy to relate to, although my husband did not enjoy the play. It is definitely told from a women's perspective. The all female cast was very good and the many songs were entertaining and enjoyable. The venue was nice and our seats were excellent as always, 3rd row center.
Quotes & Highlights
- Read more about Quilters co-author and composer Barbara Damashek.
Quilts are more than just lovely blankets made of scraps. Pioneer women, with no money and few outlets for recreation, banded together to sew and socialize. Using the goods at their disposal, they created a form of folk art and sometimes unwittingly, sometimes knowingly, they chronicled their lives in the squares of their quilts. Quilters is a lively look in words, song, dance, and quilts, at what that uniquely American experience was all about. From the plains of Texas to a Soddy in Nebraska, through blizzards and prairie fires, hard times and good, we watch a very special quilt come together. Join us for an evening that will touch and inspire.
