Running Time: ~ 2 hours

Hilarity and heartache go hand-in-hand.

This Pulitzer Prize-nominated play traces the story of one woman’s triumphant journey out of a difficult childhood in Mississippi through the civil rights movement and beyond, offering us a gripping tale of resilience and the human spirit.

“Who we are and who we become is so beautifully tied to where we are from. From the Mississippi Delta is such a powerful journey of how three Black women step into themselves and their becoming as they experience the world around them.”

Goldie E. Patrick, director
