The House That Will Not Stand

written and directed by Marcus Gardley

performers to be announced

Marcus Gardley has secured his place as one of the most promising contemporary playwrights, most notably with this piece set in 1836 New Orleans. At that time, black Creole women entered into common-law marriages with rich white men in a system of placage. When the mourning of Lazare (her common-law husband) coincides with the eve of a quadroon ball her unwed daughters wish to attend, the house that Beartrice Albans built—on a foundation of wealth, secrets, and dearley bought freedom—threatens to collapse. 

“Wondrous! House will cast a spell on you! Fully-realized, dynamic female characters, grand passion, and high comedy.”    —The Hartford Courant
