‘Stew’ play dates, times and ticket information


Play:  Stew

Playwright:  Zora Howard

Genre:  Drama

Synopsis:  The tension in the kitchen is boisterously unrelenting. Mama, who is allowed the last word, has unspecified health issues. Lillian is having marital woes. Nelly is in the throes of a romance that is redirecting her future. And Lil’ Mama is just trying to stay out of the crossfire. Stew is a hilarious and haunting drama that explores the unbreakable bond between kinswomen and reveals the power that loss holds over our lives when we refuse to share it with others.
