World Premiere
Part of the Alliance Series

In two timely one-act plays by Alliance Theatre Mellon Playwright in Residence Pearl Cleage, we meet and follow Jenny Anderson as she deals with unresolved questions from her past and works to ensure freedom for the future. In Hospice, Jenny is confronted by the approaching death of her estranged mother when the two unknowingly return to occupy the same family home. Pointing at the Moon, a continuation of the original story, picks up 30 years later immediately following the 2016 presidential election. Now a well-respected scholar and literary critic, Jenny is reluctantly drawn into the swirl of political and cultural changes and must choose between her comfortable life and her deeply held beliefs about the nature of freedom. Hospice was first performed in 1983 and was honored with five AUDELCO Awards for achievement Off Broadway; Pointing at the Moon is a world premiere. Stay after the show at the Southwest Arts Center for a revival of Pearl Cleage and Zaron Burnett’s “Club Zebra.”
