Sunday Suppers: Take a Giant Step
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Sundays offer a day of rest, renewal, and togetherness within the black community. In February, you can join us for a communal meal and animated readings of classic black plays and stories performed by Penumbra Company members. A great event for the whole family to celebrate the creativity, tenacity, and sustenance of African American culture. Let’s nourish ourselves.
