MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM | Soulpepper

USA/1982

Chicago in the 1920s is a city on a collision course with change, and the Blues are the battleground. In August Wilson’s masterpiece a routine music recording session becomes the front line for issues of race, power, and opportunity.

Note: This production contains mature language and content, haze effects, and the use of herbal cigarettes.

Approximate running time: 2 hours & 30 minutes. There will be one 20 minute intermission.
