On Strivers Row
Oscar and Dolly Van Striven are hosting their daughters debutante party in their townhouse on Striver's Row, but the success of the social event of the season is by no means guaranteed. A scheming socialite from Brooklyn, a judgmental grandmother, a secret boyfriend, a presumptuous lottery winner, and none other than 'Joe the Jiver' all want to come to this party.

The first major production of the American Negro Theatre in 1940 is described as a satire on African-American social climbing.  But Mr. Hills play is actually a complex work masquerading as a farce, dealing with issues of class, gender roles and intra-racial stereotyping.

Run time: 2:15 (including intermission)
