The Blood Quilt, April to June 2015. This world premiere of this comedy-drama focuses on four sisters who gather back at their childhood home,off the coast of Georgia, to sew a quilt in honor of their late mother.
According to the show's promotional material, when the sisters' "reunion turns into a reading of their mother’s will, everyone
must grapple with a troubling inheritance. Stitched with history and
ritual, laughter and tears, will their “blood quilt” bind the family
together or tear them apart forever?"
You may already be familiar with Ms. Hall's play The Mountaintop, about Dr. Marin Luther King on the night before his assassination. In New York, the play starred Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett.
I can't wait to see The Blood Quilt - and to also see what the actual quilt will look like! No word yet on which actresses will play the sisters. I'm sure, though, that many of quilting guild will take in this new work! Enjoy!
