Wedding Band
by Alice Childress

directed by Keely Enright

Produced in partnership with Threshold Repertory Theatre, and presented for MOJA Festival 2023.

Alice Childress’ unforgettable drama, set in post Civil War Charleston South Carolina. The year is 1918, a war rages in Europe and a global pandemic ravages at home. It is the story of Julia, a Black seamstress, and Herman her white lover in a romantic tale that searingly addresses prejudice and ignorance in early 20th Century America.

Written during the Civil Rights era, the play resonates in our modern times of racial reckoning across North America, and at a time when a new pandemic has tragically altered lives.

All performances will be at
Threshold Repertory Theatre
84 Society Street, downtown Charleston
