NOVEMBER 3 - NOVEMBER 20 | KARAMU HOUSE | directed by: Sarah May
This tense workplace thriller examines the realities of so-called “post-racial” when two co-workers—one black, the other white—are driven apart by the machinations of their boss. A chilling power struggle ensues that spins wildly out of control. RASHEEDA SPEAKING is an incisive and shocking dark comedy that keeps you in its claustrophobic grip until the final moment.

 SISTER ACTDECEMBER 1 - DECEMBER 30 | KARAMU HOUSE | directed by: Sheffia Dooley
When lively lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier sees her mobster beau, commit murder, she is relocated for her protection. Set up in the guise of a nun in a convent, Deloris proceeds to upend the quiet lives of the resident sisters. In an effort to keep her out of trouble, they assign Deloris to the convent's choir, an ensemble that she soon turns into a vibrant and soulful act that gains widespread attention.

 REPAIRING A NATIONFEBRUARY 9 - FEBRUARY 26, directed by Margaret Ford Taylor
The Davis family meets for what should be a fun holiday season in their native Tulsa,OK.  But when Lois insists the family join a class-action law suit for reparations, old family wounds are ripped open and we discover that the government isn't the only one being asked to apologize. 80 years after the Tulsa Race Riots, REPAIRING A NATION explores the complexity of inherited wounds, the nature of apology and the possibility of reconciliation. YOU CANT TAKE IT WITH YOUAPRIL 27 - MAY 14TH | directed by Fred Sternfeld
 At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view. Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up, and in the end Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores, particularly since he happens in during a visit by an ex-Grand Duchess, earning her living as a waitress. No mention has as yet been made of the strange activities of certain members of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor of the printing press set up in the parlor; nor of Rheba the maid and her friend Donald; nor of Grandpa's interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn't believe in the income tax.

If you have any questions please call Richard 216.795.7070 ext 236.
