About this show

In Constant Star, written & directed by Tazewell Thompson, five talented actresses take to the stage to portray the life of Ida B. Wells, a fearless turn of 20th century civil rights activist and journalist who organized the first anti-lynching campaign in America. Thompson weaves 20 classic Negro spirituals sung a cappella in five-part harmony into the stirring story of Wells' extraordinary and brave life. Constant Star was commissioned and first produced in 1999 by PlayMakers Rep (Chapel Hill, NC), and has enjoyed highly successful productions at several east coast resident theatres, including Syracuse Stage, where Thompson served as artistic director from 1992-95.
