A Play about Gee's Bend at the North Coast Rep Theatre
If you haven't see the actual (or pictures of) the Quilts of Gee's Bend, you need to. Then, once you'll see them, you'll no doubt want to see this play in San Diego..And there's a bonus! I'll have an exhibition of my art quilts during the run of the play with a special Wednesday, October 20, 6pm reception/7pm play and you can get a discount on your ticket using the JANECODE. (I'm excited, I've never had a code named after me!) It can be used for Gee's Bend from October 17th-November 7th. If you go to the website and go to buy tickets, push on "regular price" and then it will ask for your code.
here's the scoop on the play: A moving tale of three generations of women living in an isolated Alabama town chronicles the courage and resiliency of their life’s journey. Gee’s Bend highlights the life of Sadie Pettway, from her teenage years to her 70s, and the other women in her quilting circle. Their experiences inspired them to create magnificent quilts that were miraculous works of art, and inspired this haunting play filled with music that has swept the country.
