Every year since Emancipation, the Nacirema Society of Montgomery, Alabama introduces six elegant African-American debutants to a world of wealth, privilege and social responsibility. This year, at its 100thanniversary, with young love brewing, old flames simmering and national media attention on hand. . . what would dare to go awry? A sparkling new romantic comedy.
Pearl Cleage, award winning playwright of Blues for an Alabama Sky and Flyin’ West, and New York Times best-selling author of Oprah book club selection What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day, invites you into this glamorous world where folks still dress for dinner. For the ladies of the Nacirema Society, bus boycotts and freedom marches don’t hold a candle to the importance of making the perfect entrance…or plotting the perfect blackmail.
