Event Details

In this book club, we read plays! This month, we'll be discussing August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

"It's 1927 and Ma Rainey, the 'Mother of the Blues,' is recording new sides of old favorites in a rundown studio in Chicago. Fiery and determined, Ma Rainey fights to retain control over her music, while her cocky trumpet player Levee dreams of making his own name in the business. More than music goes down in August Wilson's riveting portrayal of rage, racism, self-hatred and exploitation." - Concord Theatricals
