Encore in Killeen, Feb 1, 2020.
Inspired by the song “Four Women” by Nina Simone.
This dramatic piece is filled with life and laughter. The original song “Four Women” by Nina Simone takes four stereotypes of black women and sings about them as if they are real people. While it serves to criticize the stereotypes, “Four Women” is also a tribute to real women. This stage play will do just that, bring the real struggles, vulnerability, and triumphs of four women to life on stage.

A Raisin in the Sun A Broadway Hit Written by Lorraine Hansberry
Photos from previous show (Aug 25, 2018)
This iconic play is about an African-American family aspiring to move beyond segregation and disenfranchisement in 1950s Chicago. A Raisin in the Sun is essentially about dreams, as the main characters struggle to deal with the oppressive circumstances that rule their lives. The title of the play references a conjecture that Langston Hughes famously posed in a poem he wrote about dreams that were forgotten or put off.
