Going to St. Ives by Lee Blessing
Directed by Cassandra Hesseltine
Cast: Juanita Harris, Christina Jioras
October 29 to November 21
Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 8pm. Sunday matinee on November 15 at 2pm.
May N’Kame, the mother of an African dictator, travels to England to see Dr. Cora Gage about medical treatment for her failing eyesight. Dr. Gage uses the consultation as an opportunity to raise the issue of the imprisonment of some of her colleagues. Meanwhile, May N’Kame’s true motive in visiting the doctor leads to fierce and fascinating discourse on morality and motherhood. Going to St. Ives is the story of two impressive women brought together by that which is personal and divided by that which is political, as both seek to accomplish the greatest good.
