DVA Productions Inc Presents: From the Mississippi Delta


Fort Worth Community Arts Center

From the Mississippi Delta

March 25 - April 2, 2016

Written By Dr. Endesha Ida Mae Holland

Director Tyrone King

Assistant Director Brad Lowrance

The journey begins in Greenwood, Mississippi (the Delta) where Phelia is inspired to dream far beyond the funny-paper walls in her drafty shotgun house in Dixie Lane Alley. From childhood, Phelia plots a series of escapes. But the journey ends, 20 years later, as Phelia "buck-dances" across the stage at the University of Minnesota to accept her Ph.D. Inspired by Alice Walker's poem "Revolutionary Petunias," the play closes with an emotional tribute to unsung black "sheroes"—extraordinary, ordinary women who are the backbone of the African-American community. This piece stars Liz Mikel and Sheran Goodspeed Keyton, two of DFW’s finest talent sharing the theatrical stage for the first time.

“A beautifully courageous play.” ~Lorraine Hansberry, Award-winning author
