Mud Row by Dominique Morisseau

People’s Light presents Mud Row, a world premiere play by recent Tony Award nominee Dominique Morisseau (Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations). 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. In this funny, heart-wrenching, and ultimately hopeful comedy-drama, Morisseau deftly shifts between past and present West Chester to paint a living portrait of family legacy. Tickets start at $35, including fees. To purchase, call 610.644.3500 or visit www.peopleslight.org. People’s Light is located at 39 Conestoga Road, Malvern, PA 19355.
