OVERVIEW

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS OUTSIDE, YOU ALWAYS HAVE FAMILY.

It’s the summer of 1967, and the songs of Motown are breaking records and breaking barriers. Chelle and her brother, Lank, are running an unlicensed after-hours joint out of their basement—risky business—especially during a brutal police crackdown that has set off riots throughout the city. When Lank offers refuge to a mysterious stranger, he and Chelle clash. Pent-up emotions erupt, and they must navigate the chaos both outside and within.

 

MIND-BLOWING. Morisseau is a direct heir to Hansberry, Williams, and Wilson. You feel the pulse and vibrations of her characters.
