Soul Rep presents Her Stories. Based on Virginia Hamilton’s award-winning childrens’ book and adapted for the stage by Tonya Davis Holloway. Original Music by Christopher Mazen. Directed by Anyika McMillan-Herod.
Virginia Hamilton’s brilliant book comes to life in this adaptation of her collection of colorful, rich, and beautiful African American folk, fairy, and even frightening tales, featuring strong, witty female characters. Soul Rep originated this play in 1998 and is excited to remount Holloway’s new, award-winning adaptation. Witness a little girl outsmart “Buh Rabby” and the Devil, shake your head at the problems between sisters in “Good Blanche, Bad Rose and the Talking Eggs”, laugh out loud when “Miz Hattie Gets Some Company,” and be shocked by the story of Catskinella, an albino she-vampire!
Presented in partnership with Scholastic, and was performed earlier this year in Germany.
