THE HOUSE THAT WILL NOT STAND Extends Through 3/23 at Berkeley Rep
Due to an exuberant reception from critics and audiences alike, Berkeley Repertory Theatre is proud to announce that the world premiere of The House that will not Stand will extend for an additional seven performances. A historically rich, sensuous, witty, and heartbreaking drama, The House that will not Stand unearths a story about free women of color in 1836 New Orleans where black Creole women entered into common-law marriages with affluent white men. Commissioned from award-winning poet-playwright Marcus Gardley and developed through The Ground Floor: Berkeley Rep's Center for the Creation and Development of New Work, The House that will not Stand will now play through Sunday, March 23, 2014.
Told in a rich and lyrical river of words The House that will not Stand presents a story about six beguiling and powerful women on a desperate search for what it means to be free in a world where freedom must be carefully negotiated. Critics and audiences agree The House that will not Stand is must-see theatre filled with a rich and eccentric look at New Orleans history. Don't miss the play that Time magazine has called one of "10 reasons for theatre lovers to leave New York in 2014."
