Deep in Alabama, just south of Selma, lies a tiny African-American community that has remained almost completely insulated from the outside world since their enslaved ancestors became free men and women. Today, Gee's Bend has one road, 700 souls, and a remarkable tradition of quilting that, around the year 2000, earned its women national acclaim. This play, Gee's Bend, which follows the true-life story of one of the river community's residents, starts in 1939 and winds its way through the Civil Rights movement and the community's unexpected rise in the art world. The cast of this production is comprised of real residents of Gee's Bend - a rare opportunity to hear their unique story, auththentically told.

All Ticket Sales Are Final.
