Written by Theroun D’Arcy Patterson
Directed by Betty Hart
The towering achievement of an African-American family is about to be shaken to its very foundation.
This powerful and emotional work falls into the classic tradition of the American family drama, telling the tale of an African-American clan trying to heal old wounds as they face new challenges – and just as they are poised to reach the pinnacle of their professional success, the father’s illness threatens to bring it all crashing down. The Essential Theatre Playwriting Award is the only competition of its kind, exclusively dedicated to the work of Georgia writers, and this will be the tenth year that it has been given out. As the 2011 winner, Theroun Patterson receives a cash prize of $600 and his play has been given a full production as part of the 2011 Essential Theatre Play Festival.
