Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe joins our colleagues around the world in
a staged reading of Flyin’ West by Pearl Cleage as part of the 8th annual Project1VOICE/1PLAY/1DAY.
Flyin’ West is a powerful look at the African-American woman pioneer. Set in 1898, the lives of a small group of African-American women change as they leave the oppressive South for the West, where they settle together in the all-black town of Nicodemus, Kansas. Their hope and determination to survive are tested as they build new lives for themselves and their families.
