The Old Settler

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_calendar/item/the_old_settler

Two women test the bonds of sisterhood in a bittersweet comedy set during the Harlem Renaissance. When a strapping young man fresh from the backwoods of South Carolina takes a room as a boarder in the Harlem apartment of two middle-aged sisters, romance blooms between lonely 55-year old Elizabeth and the handsome young newcomer – and old hurts and new tensions surface between the sisters. John Henry Redwood’s bittersweet comedy is set in 1943 during the Harlem Renaissance, when hot music played and swing dancers ruled the floor of legendary nightclubs like the Savoy Ballroom. Aug. 30-Oct. 27; Pico Playhouse, 10508 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90064; $16-$32; (323) 960-7712 or www.plays411.com/oldsettler. Please visit us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/TheOldSettler
