The Circle Wed Sept 5 & Fri Sept 7@ 7:30 PM
What happens when Waiting to Exhale meets Book Club? The Circle: A Book Club Sisterhood. When six women gather to discuss the latest book of intrigue and romance, they start to realize that the real drama isn't on the pages they have read. When groups form, there is bound to be some jealousy within the ranks. When that jealousy gets 'thick,' it threatens the stability of the group as the participants take sides and try to weather the impending storms. The Circle has all the zest of a communal meal with none of the calories.
An annual festival of primarily of local African American: playwrights, actors, and directors that come together for two weeks of theatrical fun. Format consists of a main stage show the first week, The GreenBook Chronicles, and supporting shows the following week, Night of Tens, The Circle, and Now & Then.
All shows are 7:30 PM nightly with one 2 PM matinee on 9/1 followed by a talkback with the cast. You won't want to miss these two weeks of theatrical expression.
