I would recommend everything I have seen by Pearl Cleage. The actors were all perfect for their characters, and the performances were excellent. Our group ranged from age 10 to 63 and we all enjoyed it.

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!
