Wine in the Wilderness

Louis Bluver Theatre at The Drake Get Directions

The 1964 race riots erupt outside painter Bill Jamerson’s Harlem apartment as he struggles to complete the final painting of his triptych on Black Womanhood... then he is introduced to Tommy. A force of nature whose home has been burnt down in the riots, Tommy becomes Bill’s inspiration. As artist and muse collide, they discover each other - and themselves - anew. Alice Childress’s breathtaking story calls for self-respect and empowerment during a moment of seismic change for the Black community.

“…a superb and shattering drama of raw emotions.” —Boston Herald Traveler
