This historical drama, set in Tulsa, OK, takes place on May 30th, 1921, the day leading up to the Black Wall Street massacre. Lucile and Red-Manning, owners of a boarding house located in the heart of the Greenwood district, come to realize they are two degrees separated from a guest who has come to establish roots there. Lucile and Red-Manning have a special union which is threatened by this mysterious traveler. The boarding home occupants, like most citizens of Greenwood, live a normal life, proud of the community they have built, but navigating the undercurrent of racial inequities is a constant in their lives. The play is a love story that orbits the most violent day in Black American history. 


$16 Adults, Students/Seniors $14
