DECEMBER 17, 2020: "Who Will Sing for Lena?" by Janice Liddell
This stunning one-woman production won awards for Lexington Players in 2019; it was taped at AFD, and the author has agreed to open access for a limited period of time. After the play, there will be a virtual talk-back with the director, actor and playwright.
"Lena" tells the story of a Black domestic woman in Cuthbert, Georgia, who killed her white employer after years of abuse. After a brief trial, a jury of twelve white men found her guilty and sentenced her to the electric chair.
Running time: 50 minutes. Contains mature themes and language.
This program is for MEMBERS ONLY. And membership is only $20.
