WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Welcome to the Jernigan Gals' Quilting Corner. Gathering at their childhood island home off the coast of Georgia, four disconnected sisters meet to create a family quilt to honor their recently deceased mother. When their reunion turns into a reading of their mother's will, everyone must grapple with a troubling inheritance. Stitched with history and ritual, laughter and tears, will their "blood quilt" bind the family together or tear them apart forever? Inaugural resident playwright Katori Hall (The Mountaintop) is once again "fearlessly redefining theater" (Washington Post) with this funny and fierce world premiere.
