About this show

Meet the women of Gee's Bend, who sing hauntingly beautiful gospel melodies as they create magnificent (and now, world-famous) hand-made quilts. This epic yet intimate play spans fifty years, following Sadie Pettway through the trials of an abusive marriage, racial indignities and the hardships of the working poor. Inspired by a true story, Gee's Bend has already touched millions who witnessed the stunning quilt work through a national exhibition tour, on PBS's NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, and in Newsweek, House and Garden, and Oprah Winfrey's O Magazine.
