Review from Jessica Anderson

As usual, the writing was stellar and the performances brought the play to life. The play accurately captures the great divide among African American generations without wrapping everything up into an unrealistic nice neat box.

Description

A Midwest Premiere

By Pearl Cleage

Directed by Sarah Moeller

Inspired by the long line of mourners who came by Ebenezer Baptist Church to pay their respects to Mrs. Coretta Scott King, A Song for Coretta introduces five fictional African-American women, aged 17 to 57, waiting in the rain to say their final good-byes. Cleage shows the impact that Mrs. King had on the lives of these women, and the connections that they build with one another through her memory and legacy. Eclipse is proud to present the Midwest Premiere of Ms. Cleage’s latest work!
