The first regional production of James Sheldon’s poignant new play, since the world premiere Off-Broadway run at New York’s Billie Holiday Theatre.
Gloucester Stage is proud to partner with Windhover Performing Arts Center to make outdoor, live, socially-distanced performances possible this summer. Located in the neighboring town of Rockport, this historic venue will provide the perfect backdrop for returning to in-person theater and dance.
Ginny, a successful book editor, invites a young, black aspiring author, Reg, to her apartment after a boozy book party. She wakes up to find that a night of tenderness and passion is turning into a tumultuous morning-after when he threatens to reveal a dark secret from her past. As family friends join them for an ill-timed paella feast, all four are soon embroiled in whether the young writer is due his restitution. Personal revelations lead to laughs, tears, and coming to terms with racial injustice and personal betrayal in this poignant new play by James Sheldon.
