PLEASE NOTE: the Studio Theater is on the 2nd Floor, it is only accessible by stairs, there is no elevator.

Imagine a pairing . . . between Tennessee Williams and Lorraine Hansberry, a memory play about a black family, a glass menagerie in the sun . . . CRUMBS FROM THE TABLE OF JOY [is] a small window into the past, and this almost voyeuristic glimpse is worth attention.
Synopsis

From the fertile mind of Lynn Nottage who brought us the popular By the Way, Meet Vera Stark, comes this 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.
