The Old Settler
Two women test the bonds of sisterhood in  Redwood's bittersweet comedy,The Old Settler. Tico Wells and Artistic Director Dr. Mona Vaughn Scott produce this GENTLE SWEET NATURED COMEDY about life in Harlem in  1943 for a  two-week run, March 16th through March 30th at the Birel L. Vaughn Theater in Berkeley CA.'s very own UPTOWN.  Set in Harlem during World War II, when hot music played and swing dancers ruled the floor of legendary nightclubs like the Savoy Ballroom. The Old Settler is a funny and moving story about hope, love, dreams, disappointment and forgiveness. Middle-aged sisters Elizabeth and Quilly have learned to put past differences behind them. But when a handsome young man named Husband takes a room as a boarder, old hurts and new tensions are brought to the surface.

"It's about the need for love and the pain of loneliness. "But there's also a lot of humor and cultural history, and the play's setting is fascinating. In 1943, Harlem was a nerve center of music and culture for blacks and whites alike. Remember, this was during the war, long before the Civil Rights movement."
