OVERVIEW

Step Right Up, Ma’am” is a multi-disciplinary theater production featuring stories of resilience, staged by Donna Peckett and performed by Nedra Bobo-Boyles, Liz Light and Atlanta-based actor Eileen Koteles. The production includes the writings of poet Fabu, poet and novelist Dale M. Kushner and playwright Danielle Dresden.

Fabu’s writings in “Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Proud” center the beauty, genius and joy of black women. Kushner’s poems, from her recently published book, “M,” dive into the transformative experiences of women in myth and history, from desire through loss and grief to awakening. Dresden’s work, “Henny & the Strawberries,” is based on the real-life experiences of her cousins as hidden Jewish children during World War II in the Netherlands. The play concludes with characters from each author gathering to find a way forward
