About this show

Stricken with tuberculosis, Ernest Hogan, an African-American entertainer, hires Sharon Flynn, a saucy Irish immigrant, to care for and amuse him through his sickness. However, her spirit turns out to be more then he bargained for. Contempt blossoms into love as the pair struggles to reach an understanding of the other's race and gender. Ripe with relevance, Michael Aman's play scrutinizes racism in the entertainment industry with this charming story of two people reeling with regret over the life they've been given and the one that was withheld.
