Returning The Bones
How do you choose between your country, your people, and yourself? Especially when your own country doesn't consider you worthy of being called a full citizen? Do you fight for change or do you get out while you can?
These are some of the questions RETURNING THE BONES asks. It is based on the true story of the African American doctor, Caroline Beatrice Montier, (aka "Bebe") now 84. After being invited to finish her medical degree in Europe shortly after WWII, Bebe has to choose between staying in the South (and continuing to risk her life in the fight for Civil Rights), or escaping to Paris to live a life she's always dreamed of.
RETURNING THE BONES is a solo show with 26 characters and multiple dialects performed by Helen Hayes Award-winner, Gin Hammond. Classic storytelling combined with a fluid physical style will bring you on a journey of many miles, perspectives, and epiphanies.
Directed by Jane Jones, Co-Artistic Director of Book-It Repertory Theatre.
$17.50 advance tickets and $22.00 at the door.
