Alabama, 1932, the heart of the Depression. Tice, a laid off African-American steelworker, swears by his bible as much as he does the words of Karl Marx. His widowed daughter, Cali, who does the laundry of the rich white folk and collects the treasures that are left in their sheets--a ribbon here, a shoe there--lives with him in a cabin. In the middle of the night, a stranger--a white man suspected of murdering a foreman at the steel mill--knocks on their door with the intent of changing their worlds for good.

Area premiere of MacArthur "genius" award winning playwright Naomi Wallace's THINGS OF DRY HOURS will feature actors James Craven, Hope Cervantes and Sam Bardwell. Directed by Frank Artistic Director Wendy Knox with set design by John Francis Bueche, costume design by Kathy Kohl, lighting design by Mike Wangen and sound design by Dan Dukich.

"THINGS OF DRY HOURS is a beautiful, brave and devastating play, a profound imaginative delving into radical resistance and hope rising at an impossible moment, in crushingly inhospitable circumstances. No one writes about politics, history and all that's hidden underneath better than Naomi Wallace. Ferocious, tender, whimsical, tough, brutally direct, poetically elusive, her voice is utterly unique and essential. I'm grateful, as always, for her unsparing, painful, sexy stirring up of our human selves." -Tony Kushner  

"Naomi Wallace's gorgeously written and philosophically rich celebration of a black Communist agitator in the Depression-era South...Wallace weaves together these proud, lonely souls with language rich in metaphor and, at times, as hard and piercing as a handful of nails." --Time Out New York
