Description

The No Play by John Henry Redwood, Directed by William Earl Ray

The play conveys the racially divided world of Halifax, North Carolina in 1949 during the apex of the Jim Crow era. The title is derived from many “No” signs that dotted the southern landscape during that despotic era in American History.

Mattie Cheeks is an African-American woman struggling to raise her two daughters and protect her marriage while surviving the insurmountable effects of racism and bigotry. She finds an ally in Yaveni Aaronsohn, a Jewish scholar who also must endure and overcome the reality of racial intolerance.

The play is about deep family bonds, profound love and cultural connections.
