The House That Will Not Stand

Updated: Dec 12, 2021


Performances Nov 12 - Nov 21, 2021


This play set in the early nineteenth-century New Orleans tells the story of a widowed mother, Beartrice, who struggles to manage her headstrong daughters after the death of her second husband. But as the matriarch takes her place as head of the household, a more ominous transfer of power transpires in the region. The French-owned Louisiana Territory is about to be acquired by the United States, threatening the liberty of the free African-Americans residing on the land. A gripping examination of intersecting captivities, THE HOUSE THAT WILL NOT STAND follows four women in mourning as they look ahead to an uncertain and haunting future.
