Production Notes

Crumbs from the Table of Joy
By Lynn Nottage
Directed by Paris Crayton III
October 14 to October 24, 2021

It is 1950 and the Crump family have just arrived to live in Brooklyn from Pensacola, Florida. The father, Godfrey, is still nearly paralyzed with grief after his wife’s death and puts his faith in radio evangelist Father Divine. His daughters—sassy Ermina and studious Ernestine, escape their gloomy basement flat by going to the movies. Their mother’s sister Lily arrives, and the girls are taken with her daring, unconventional ways. After disappearing for a few days, their father returns with a new wife—a German immigrant who hopes to win the family’s love. But idealism can only take you so far in America and Pulitzer prize winning writer Lynn Nottage weaves a tapestry of resilience, dreams, and eventual heartbreak.

Recommended for Ages 13+
