Full Cast Set for LATW's Crumbs from the Table of Joy, Starring Russell Hornsby and Charlayne Woodard

By Los Angeles
L.A. Theatre Works will present Lynn Nottage's Crumbs from the Table of Joy, starring Deidrie Henry, Russell Hornsby, Tinashe Kajese, Kate Steele, and Charlayne Woodard, to run December 9-13 at the Skirball Cultural Center. The show will be presented as part of their "The Play's The Thing" radio series. The production will be directed by Seret Scott.

In Crumbs from the Table of Joy, the Crump family is in trouble. Godfrey is widowed and adrift, and his teen daughters, Ernestine and Ermina, have immersed themselves in glamorous illusions of Hollywood to escape the racial prejudice of 1950s Brooklyn. But things change quickly when free-spirited Aunt Lily shows up. Suddenly, Godfrey remarries a white woman, Ermina discovers boys, and Ernestine is torn between embracing bebop and the Communist Party.
