Written in the mid-1980s, this former broadway production deals with the complexity of relationships that stand in need of healing work and progress. This play provides a dramatic backdrop of action and conflict, yet is pregnant with resolution and hope. It is filled with an array of inspirational, heartfelt, uplifting, spirit-strengthening, hand-clapping, foot-stomping, infectious gospel music.

The production is sponsored by UCSC Student Affairs, the Council on Ethnic Programming, Center for Cultural Arts and Diversity, Student Initiated Outreach, UCSC Division of the Arts, Monterey Peninsula College, and UCSC Theater Arts Department.

Performance schedule:

• UCSC Second Stage, February 23 and 24 at 7 p.m. and February 25 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $13/general admission, $9/students (non-UCSC), free for UCSC students.
