Directed by D. Lynn Meyers

Cast: Annie Fitzpatrick as Susannah Mullally & Torie Wiggins as Alberta ‘Pearl’ Johnson

Set during the Great Depression, Susannah travels the country, recording lost traditional songs. Hoping to find the one song that will bring her long-awaited recognition, she discovers Pearl Johnson in a Texas prison. With a silky, soulful voice and a wealth of African-American spiritual songs, Pearl seeks information and a chance at freedom. This moving drama chronicles a powerful story about being a woman in a man’s world, being black in a white world, and fighting for one’s soul in a world where anyone can be a commodity. This production contains mature themes and may not be suitable for all audiences.
