Event Description

Crumbs From the Table of Joy comes from the fertile mind of  Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage who brought us the popular By the Way, Meet Vera Stark.  This is a timeless tale of a family’s struggles in 1950s America.  The Crump family, having recently lost their mother, moves from Florida to Brooklyn in search of a better life.  As they struggle to rebuild, they are faced with religious division, racism, and the stresses that come from political, sexual, and social differences.  A cross between The Glass Menagerie and A Raisin in the Sun, this insightful and poignant drama will surely speak to anyone where family love has gotten in the way of happiness.

Lynn Nottage is an American playwright whose work often deals with the lives of women of African descent. She won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2009 for Ruined. She won the 2016 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2017 for Sweat, becoming the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama twice.
