a World Premiere by Amy Evans
featuring Joy Jones as Nina Simone
Inspired by untold, true events in the life of music legend Nina Simone. It’s 1962 and Nina and her band are holed up from a snowstorm in a greasy spoon somewhere in North Carolina. As tempers flare and secrets surface, it seems the waitress at this small-town diner may soon be the only witness of a historic meltdown. Suddenly, the door swings open, and the famous outsiders discover they’re truly in unfriendly territory. A sharply drawn, exciting new play that intimately portrays a cultural icon and the turbulent era during which she rose to fame. Directed by Reginald Douglas.
