Regine inherits a house she never wanted, while Toshi’s been squatting for three months. Elsie hopes to move up in the world; Frances fights to change it. Two generations of sisters protect and defy the legacy of their foremothers in this riveting, funny, and ultimately hopeful world premiere set in West Chester, PA and written by one of the most sought-after voices in American theatre. Mud Row is the second production to emerge from our New Play Frontiers Residency & Commission Program.
Recommended for ages 12+ due to profanity and racially-charged language. Approximate run time is 2 hours and 5 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission.
Lively pre-performance discussions (and snacks!) provide a behind-the-scenes look into the play with Resident Dramaturg Gina Pisasale and members of the cast. Tiffany Rachelle Stewart will be Gina’s guest on July 10 and 17, and both Bjorn DuPaty and Eric Robinson Jr. will join Gina on July 3 and 24.

"Morisseau brings... care, humor, and deep emotional connection to her portrait of life"
"Immaculate direction... stunning set design."
"Taut and terrific"
"Morisseau nimbly takes us back and forth through these generations, a risky time-warp device that works here so organically that after the first shift it’s hardly noticeable."
If these walls could talk...
"About as perfectly put together as theater ever can be."
"Powerful and gripping... one of the few times in recent memory that I wished the intermission would end sooner."
