The Nacirema Society
by Pearl Cleage
Directed by Kenya Fashaw
February 3-March 3, 2024
Every year since Emancipation, the Nacirema Society of Montgomery, Alabama introduces six elegant African American debutantes to a world of wealth, privilege and social responsibility. This year, at its 100th anniversary, with young love brewing, old flames simmering and national media attention on hand, what would dare to go awry? The warm and funny play takes place in 1964, 10 years after the bus boycott and just as Martin Luther King, Jr. is preparing for a massive voter registration drive. As Pearl Cleage (Flyin’ West) writes, “It is important to remember that even in the midst of massive social upheaval and revolutionary change, people still found time to fall in and out of love, to keep the family secrets or spill the beans and to embrace the great human chaos of their very specific lives.”
No Late Seating
Because of the configuration of our theater, we cannot seat patrons who arrive past the start time of the play.
Please arrive early to the show!
If you discover you make a reservation or purchase a ticket and find you cannot attend please call us at (303) 562-3232 so that we don't delay the show on your behalf. We may be able to accommodate you at another performance (if space is available.)
Masks are encouraged but not required.
Ours is a small, intimate space. With flu season upon us and COVID still an issue, masks are key ways that we can protect one another and the actors on stage.
