Part of Fertile Ground: A City-wide Festival of New Works | Written by Bonnie Ratner & Directed by William Earl Ray
It’s 1967: Harold Stein travels from his home on Long Island to his small shoe store in a predominantly black Brooklyn neighborhood. Fearful of being robbed, or worse, Stein operates his store behind a locked door while his wife, Sylvia, remains trapped at home by her own demons and a culture that denies her dreams.
Millie True is a teacher and her son, Jimmy, is a Black nationalist like his father, Millie’s ex. When Millie witnesses a young black man trying to get into Stein’s store, the ensuing events challenge not only Stein and the community, but also those of us who bear witness to his journey.
