Blues for an Alabama Sky

  • Court Theatre 5535 South Ellis Avenue Chicago, IL, 60637 United States (map)

In the midst of the Great Depression, the creative spirit of New York’s Harlem Renaissance struggles with harsher realities. Angel and Guy, emerging artists with grand dreams, live next door to the more serious and political Delia, a social worker with the goal to open a community family planning clinic. Each must face their own hardships head on, but always with hope for a better life close at hand. They search for a way to keep their dreams of love, career, and service alive in times of economic despair, and they learn that the Great Depression can't destroy the source of their creative spirit.

We invite you to join us following this Preview performance for a discussion with the director and members of our artistic staff.
