Roaming Charges - Performance
Lacey Cubbard, a precocious and brave African American young lady, new to the neighborhood, gently swings backs and forth on a swing. Kate, a lonesome white English teacher enters, sits on one of the lawn chairs and begins to read. This seemingly precious and innocent beginning soon evolves into a gorgeous poem/play about mothers and daughters, race, suburbia, academia, identity and poetry. Lacey, Kate, and eventually Lacey's mother are woven into a pattern that is both tangled and delicate, both tortuous and lovely. For information call (313) 868-1347.
