A well-made period play in the tradition of Lynn Nottage’s heroine-led stories with the sweeping scope of August Wilson’s epics; Good Bread Alley is a story about how families are made and the power of love. Afro Cuban and Gullah music, dance & myth create an epic landscape that explores the most fundamental truths about a mother’s love and the struggle to become better than what was promised.
Inspired by my Great Grandmother Celia’s life in a raucous Miami neighborhood named Good Bread Alley, the play takes place days before the1926 Great Hurricane. In the days when Miami was little more than a swamp with shanty houses, Celia owned property, ran several businesses, buried three husbands and was on the verge of learning life’s most important lessons. She was a trailblazer, an autodidact and the town’s rainmaker building an oasis in the Jim Crow South.
