About this show

Just before the Civil Rights Movement begins to burgeon, Alberta, unmarried and in her thirties, shares an apartment with her mother, Weedy, an old-fashioned black woman who finds solace for her trouble in religion. Unexpectedly, a wandering street singer, Blind Jordan, comes to their door searching for a woman he once knew. The others are puzzled, and even frightened by their visitor, but Alberta offers to help him in his quest and when they are alone, all the emotional and sexual frustration struggling within her bursts forth in a scene of tremendous eloquence and power.
