The House that Will Not Stand
Directed by Michelle “Chelly” Purnell and Clint Rebik
New Orleans, 1836. Following an era of French colonial rule and relative racial acceptance, Louisiana’s “free people of color” are prospering. Beatrice, a free woman of color, has become one of the city’s wealthiest women through her relationship with a rich white man. A bewitching new drama of desire, jealousy, murder and voodoo, The House That Will Not Stand received its world premiere at Berkeley Rep in January 2014.
“…buoyant and barby…Plus, its lyrical undoings, depth, and playful fervor make for a dazzling and rousing experience.” – East Bay Express
