By Dominique Morisseau Directed by Steve H. Broadnax III Steinbright Stage
A new play from Tony Award nominee Dominique Morisseau

Two generations of sisters navigate class, race, love, and family on “Mud Row,” an area in the East End of West Chester, Pennsylvania. Elsie hopes to move up in the world by marrying into “the talented tenth,” while her sister Frances joins the fight for Civil Rights. Decades later, estranged sisters Regine and Toshi are forced to reckon with their shared heritage, and each other, when Regine inherits granny Elsie’s house. Tony Award nominee Dominique Morisseau deftly shifts between past and present to paint a living portrait of family legacy. 

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.
