Shakin’ the Mess Outta Misery: A Coming-of-Age Tale

November 9 – December 10, 2017

Chicago Dramatists
773 N. Aberdeen, Chicago, IL 60642

Shakin’ the Mess Outta Misery is a magical memory play featuring songs and stories that follow a young black girl as she grows up in the civil rights-era South. The narrator, 25-year-old “Daughter,” shares memories of being raised by a community of women — some related, many not — after losing her mother as a child. This timeless coming-of-age tale explores passage into womanhood, race and rituals in the 1960s South. Be uplifted by Shay Youngblood’s stories of survival, healing, deep faith and mystery when the play comes to the stage of Chicago Dramatists Theatre courtesy of Pegasus.

 

Tickets Range from $20 and Up http://pegasustheatrechicago.org/productions/shakin-mess-outta-misery/
