  • A new play written by Tony Award® nominated artist Charlayne Woodard gets its world premiere at the La Jolla Playhouse.

    Co-directed by Patricia McGregor and Delicia Turner Sonnenberg

    A Co-Production with Baltimore Center Stage

    Written by the Tony Award® nominated artist Charlayne Woodard, this moving world-premiere play explores the complex relationship between two “alpha” women: Claire Rose, an elderly Black woman, and her middle-aged daughter, Cassandra. After not speaking to each other for the past three years, Cassandra shows up unexpectedly at her mother’s garden gate, attempting to reconcile old wounds. Both women give as good as they get, taking us on a rollercoaster ride unearthing conflicts and secrets of the past, and creating magic in the process.

    La Cuisine Custom Catering
    The Paula Marie Black Endowment for Women’s Voices in the Art of Theatre
