ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE

WEDDING BAND
By Alice Childress
Directed by Lou Bellamy

In a small South Carolina town by the sea, Julia keeps to herself. Her love, Herman, arrives after dark with a wedding cake—a symbol of their decade long commitment and secret vows to one another. Unable to legally marry, these star-crossed lovers—one black, one white—live in constant fear of arrest or worse. The rules that govern society don’t govern the heart, and Julia and Herman risk safety and security for love. Will the price be more than they can bear? Written in 1962, this passionate classic stirs the heart and proves searingly relevant as race takes center stage in American politics.
