About this show

A cello resonates as Ruth, an African American artist and teacher, struggles to deal with the men in her life. Whether learning to love a friend suffering from HIV or reeling from memories of her father's abuse, Ruth discovers how to appreciate what she has while she has it. Penned by Lydia R. Diamond (Stick Fly) and winner of Theodore Ward Playwriting Award, The Gift Horse follows Ruth from college, through therapy, into marriage and finally motherhood as she and the cellist explore what makes love easy and what makes love hard.
