About This Show

To realise our dreams, we must wake up.

New York, 1930.

Following a decade of creative explosion, the Harlem Renaissance is starting to feel the bite of the Great Depression.

In the face of hardship and dwindling opportunity, Angel and her friends battle to keep their artistic dreams alive.

But, when Angel falls for a stranger from Alabama, their romance forces the group to make good on their ambitions, or give in to the reality of the time.

Lynette Linton directs a startling revival of this extraordinary play by Pearl Cleage. Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale, Orange Is the New Black) makes her UK stage debut alongside a cast that includes Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo (Three Sisters), Osy Ikhile (Sweat), Sule Rimi (Barber Shop Chronicles) and Giles Terera (Death of England: Face to Face).
