Book Description

30 Nov 2008
1m, 3f / Drama / Simple set Gee's Bend depicts the turbulent history of African-Americans in the 20th century by focusing on a single family in the real community of Gee's Bend, AL, which is now famous for the beautiful quilts created by the women that grew up there. Gospel songs weave in and out of this hauntingly beautiful work. "Gee's Bend is a lovefest -- between the characters in the play and the land they live on, between the actors and the characters they're portraying, between the play and the audience." -Orlando Sentinel "Touching, lovely, and true." -Chicago Sun-Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book! 20 May 2014

I had the opportunity to see and visit with some of the women from Gee's Bend when I was in Illinois earlier this spring. After meeting them and seeing their work, I felt like their books would be an incredible addition to my personal library. I wish I'd had these books before I met them. A friend of mine had one of their books, and the women were thrilled to look through the book with her and sign the pages with quilts made by their family members.
5.0 out of 5 stars loved this play! 21 Oct 2012

I picked the book up and expexted to just read a few pages before bed, but the story was sooooo captivating that I did not go to bed till it was finished.
And then I read it again a few days later.
It is a def must buy and if you love american theatre, you will be happy to have it among the plays in your collection.
