WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In this searing drama that pulses with the Blues, the legendary Ma Rainey and her band make music and deals in a 1927 Chicago recording studio as they contend with thwarted ambitions, the demands of their producers and the stifling realities of cultural divides. Inspired by real-life Mother of the Blues Gertrude "Ma" Rainey, this groundbreaking work is part of Wilson's Tony Award-winning Century Cycle, a series of plays that explores African American life in the 20th Century.
