(6/27/2019) - People's Light presents Mud Row, a world premiere play by recent Tony Award nominee Dominique Morisseau (Ain't Too Proud - The Life and Times of the Temptations). Two generations of sisters navigate class, race, love, and family on "Mud Row," an area in the East End of West Chester, Pennsylvania. Elsie hopes to move up in the world by marrying into "the talented tenth," while her sister Frances joins the fight for Civil Rights. Decades later, estranged sisters Regine and Toshi are forced to reckon with their shared heritage, and each other, when Regine inherits granny Elsie's house. In this funny, heart-wrenching, and ultimately hopeful comedy-drama, Morisseau deftly shifts between past and present West Chester to paint a living portrait of family legacy.

In 1910 England, the most essential fixture in any family's home is the nanny, but with kids like Jane and Michael, the Banks family just can't seem to keep one! That is until the practically perfect Mary Poppins drops in. She'll need more than just a "spoonful of sugar" to help this family take a dose of common sense. She'll also need a fair bit of magic and help from the loveable Bert, who is far more than just a chimney sweep.Photo Flash: Hershey Area Playhouse Presents DEARLY DEPARTED by BWW News Desk - Central Pennsylvania
