MMC Studio Production Workshop presents On Strivers Row, a satire on African-American social climbing written by Abram Hill, who was the Executive Director of the trailblazing American Negro Theatre that produced the play’s premiere in 1946. The play is set in a community in Harlem on 138-139th Streets where residents aspire to the lifestyle of Park Avenue socialites, but have little empathy for their poorer neighbors only blocks away. Oscar Van Striven, a Harlem real estate “blockbuster,” and Dolly, his high-minded wife, think they have concocted the perfect society debut party at their home for their daughter, Cobina. The comic complications of the evening unmask their greed and pretentions, while Cobina learns to stand up for principle. On Strivers Row is performed by students in the Theatre Arts programs of the College with direction by Timothy Johnson, lighting design by Chris Steckel, and stage management by Taylor Garcia.
