Gloucester Stage: Reparations
September 13 - September 19
Ginny, a successful book editor, invites a young, black aspiring author, Reg, to her apartment after a boozy book party. She wakes up to find that a night of tenderness and passion is turning into a tumultuous morning-after when he threatens to reveal a dark secret from her past. As family friends join them for an ill-timed paella feast, all four are soon embroiled in whether the young writer is due his restitution. Personal revelations lead to laughs, tears, and coming to terms with racial injustice and personal betrayal in this poignant new play by James Sheldon.
Reparations will run through September 19. Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 pm at Windhover Center for the Performing Arts, 257R Granite St, Rockport, MA.
