Waiting To Be Invited
April 25 – May 11
“Probably the most important piece of political theatre in the last decade.” New York Times.
Central Ohio Premiere – Waiting to Be Invited is the true tale of four black women who summoned the courage to test the 1964 Supreme Court decision on integration. Three of the four women ride in the front of the bus on their way to stage a sit-in at an all-white restaurant in Atlanta. They are joined by the pastor’s wife who struggles to shield and save her friends from the assaults and insults from the Jim Crow South. Based on the experiences of the author’s grandmother, this riveting story allows us to see the effect that the civil rights movement had on the feelings and actions of average citizens.
