Production Description

Casting a play about Purlie’s dream of becoming a preacher to the African American community in southern Georgia, where he and his family live and where little has changed over the generations. However, during the 1950’s, change has begun. Reference is made to the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycotts, Martin Luther King, Jr., and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Purlie is influenced by all of these, but his motives come primarily from within himself and his own experiences.
