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.- The New York Post
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.
