Event Details

Set against the backdrop of the 1921 Tulsa riots, Hunger In Paradise introduces the audience to the citizens of Greenwood , a thriving area of black-owned businesses and prosperity. When proprietor Damie 's adopted son "D" becomes involved with a white woman, racial tensions explode into violence and destruction, irreversibly altering the relationships among the Greenwood and Tulsa neighbors.
 
  
 

 

A typical review of the play reads:Mary McCallum has dramatized one of America’s most shameful episodes of racial strife into one of the finest historical plays I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing. She has masterfully interwoven historical events and personalities into a fascinating fictional tapestry…. “Hunger in Paradise” is a truly magnificent blend of history and creative composition.” Bill Dorian, Reviewer, Nashville Pride
