Greenbelt Arts Center presents a workshop reading of The Quadroon and the Dove, a new work by Charlene A. Donaghy. This play is in preparation for its Off-Broadway debut.

In 1840s New Orleans, Clarice, a free woman of color mistress to Lucien, a wealthy French Creole, obsesses and schemes to have Lucien bound to her alone, in a life away from repressive laws and intruding paramours. As the Quadroon Ball approaches, she sees her life spinning out of control as Lucien’s desires for new love and family intertwine with a growing slave uprising.

To register to attend a performance, please fill out the form at this link and the Zoom information will be emailed to you. We are asking a suggested donation of $10 to help support our continuing efforts to provide theater to Greenbelt and the larger community; please click on Donate and select “Support Online Shows.”

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!

This sensational drama tells the story of Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro baseball leagues who now works as a garbage man in 1957 Pittsburgh. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy’s bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play baseball. In the powerful, stunning dramatic work that won August Wilson his first Pulitzer Prize, Troy has gone through life in a country where being proud and black meant facing pressures that could crush a man, body and soul. But the 1950’s are yielding to the new spirit of liberation in the 1960’s. It’s a spirit that is making him a stranger, angry and afraid, in a world he never knew and to a wife and son he understands less and less.
