Our third "Fearless" production of the 20-21 season will stream online February 23-28, 2021 on showtix4u.com
The UWG Theatre Company celebrates Black History Month with this sweet, poignant (and somewhat local) play that covers 20th century African American history. Gee’s Bend centers on women born, reared, and living in the real community of Gee’s Bend, Alabama, which is famous for the beautiful quilts the women make there. As they sew their quilts, we are transported to different decades and by their empowerment to seek change.
Check out the trailer for Gee's Bend HERE.
