The Big Deal: WaterTower Theatre Presents Bread

by Zoee Acosta 4 Apr 2018 8:31 AM

Bread is nourishment. Bread is legacy. Bread is life itself. And bread is money.

WaterTower Theatre presents the world premiere of “Bread” the play by award-winning Dallas-born actress and playwright Regina Taylor. In it, Taylor weaves a compelling family drama of hopes, fears, thwarted dreams, and dark secrets against a turbulent backdrop of racial tension and social upheaval.

It is early 2017; a time of change. James and Ruth are a middle-class couple from Oak Cliff, a historic south Dallas neighborhood on the verge of gentrification. They plan a bright future for their teenage son and his soon-to-be-born brother. But when James’ brother Jeb returns home, buried family tensions resurface and the past casts a troubling shadow across an uncertain future. Sign up for a chance to win one pair of tickets to see this timely story of identity and family, April 20, at the Addison Conference and Theatre Centre.
