Description

GEM OF THE OCEAN

By August Wilson
November 15-24

Gem of the Ocean is the ninth work in August Wilson's ten-play cycle recording the American Black experience. Set in 1904, the play begins on the eve of Aunt Esther's 287th birthday. When Citizen Barlow comes to her home seeking asylum, she sets him off on a spiritual journey to the mythical “City of Bones”, via the slave ship Gem of the Ocean. A powerful story of holding on to your ancestry in order to forge your future, Gem of the Ocean is truly a masterpiece.

“Wilson's masterpiece rings true today.” - Chicago Tribune
