Told through the eyes of 17-year-old Ernestine, this is a memory play about an African-American family from the Deep South that has moved to bustling Brooklyn in 1950 and is forced to face significant changes in their lifestyle, their religious views, their social views and the changes that come simply with growing up.
Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage (author of RUINED which was recently produced at The Denver Center), CRUMBS is a lyrical, funny and compassionate gem that charms the heart with its delightful, unforgettable characters and its message of tolerance, love and the quest for self-discovery.
“Ms. Nottage portrays the Crumps with wit, unaffected sweetness and the same infallible ear that helped make Intimate Apparel so memorable. Time and again her dialogue makes your mouth pop open with the twin shock of recognition and delight.” -Wall Street JournalPerformance dates are January 27 – February 19, 2012 in the Aurora Fox Studio Theatre.
