About this show

Set at the time of President Kennedy's assassination in 1963, Caroline, or Change tells the powerful story of Caroline, a black maid working for a Southern Jewish family while struggling to raise her own children amidst the swirling social changes sweeping the country. At the heart of this beautiful story is Caroline's relationship with the family's young son, Noah, who turns to Caroline for solace after the death of his mother. Everything changes, however, when Noah's stepmother decrees that Caroline can keep any money Noah leaves in the pockets of his laundry, thus sparking a tension that rips apart two households and mirrors the conflict outside their doors. Book & Lyrics by Tony Kushner.
