Pat's House, a well-known brothel in Cleveland, Ohio, in the '30s and '40s: Somebody tried to kill you or you tried to kill somebody; you're a homosexual; you "passing for somebody you ain't"; "you old and nobody want you no mo'"; "you too ugly"; or you just "got a story to tell." Come to Mz. Pat's—a house of magic and mystery!
Storyteller Extraordinaire and International Performer: Jovelyn Richards weaves the tales of four heart gripping characters that jump to the music of jazz and blues. Stories of racism, homophobia, murder and mystery and through it all love, during the 1930’s other great depression.
