Afrikan Women’s Repertory Company stages four days of theater

2/13/2014, 12:39 p.m.

Afrikan Women’s Repertory Company (AWR) presents four days of theater with the premiere of our first African-American historical play based on the life and times of Ida B. Wells. The story is told in two parts: part one, “Death of Three Warriors,” takes us back to 1888 in the South, telling an all-too-familiar story of success, loss, life and death. The second play, “Lynching at Valdosia Georgia: The Mary Turner Story,” paints an intimate portrait of the times and life of another one of our brilliant women committed to freedom and dignity.

Come see what happens in these two skillfully crafted and historically important plays during Black History Month at the Producer’s Club, located at 358 W. 44th St., between Eighth and Ninth avenues, Feb. 13-16.
