WHAT: “SISTERS” by Joanne Hudson & Royal Shirèe
SYNOPSIS: Two sisters, one white and one black, struggle to keep the peace at home during the Civil War. “SISTERS” investigates the concept of ownership and slavery through the lives of two “sisters,” one black and one white, who lived together before, during, and after the Civil War. Through these two real-life characters, dual playwrights take on the black girl/white girl thing and attempt to work it out through the lives of two women who lived 150 years ago.
