Edward Albee's
The Death of Bessie Smith

Monday, November 6 at 7:30 p.m.

Written in 1959, this one-act play by the late Edward Albee takes place in a "Whites Only" hospital in Memphis, Tennessee on the night that the famous blues singer, Bessie Smith, was killed in a car wreck. A disturbing and provocative play that feels all too timely yet again.
