Reading: "BLANKS"

BLANKS - A full length play reading

by Gethsemane Herron

Directed by NJ Agwuna

Written In response to the play “Top Girlsby Caryl Churchill, it replaces Lady Nijo, Patient Griselda, etc. with Black women from across history and media; Ruth Younger from “A Raisin in the Sun,” Bessie Mears from “Native Son,”  Tilda/Nightshade/Linda from “The Black Panther” Universe, Margaret Garner from history and opera, and Helen Robinson from “To Kill a Mockingbird.” If “Top Girls” asks what sacrifices women must make to be successful in the work world, Herron asks what are the sacrifices Black women make in order to pursue romantic and filial love?
