A Performance by Ally Theatre Company of an original play written by Doug Robinson. Welcome to Sis’s, reimagines the story of Sis’s Tavern in North Brentwood. The play takes place during the 1920-30s and explores the meaning of community, the commonplace, and how it was shaped through racial segregation. Blending the genres of original comedy and drama, and based on historical inspiration, this play presents a unique view of racial inequality, oppression, and segregation right in our own backyard.
This is the first reading of an original play. The play will be performed at Joe’s Movement Emporium, May 3-5, 2019.
