From the show:
Grandma’s Quilt is sure to be powerful; promoting confidence as well as entertaining all in attendance with rich, colorful stories of Black history. A vivid, poignant and engrossing tale that chronicles the progress of an American story as told throughout the eyes of a single character from age 13 through her 90’s. Knowing she is aging, Grandma’s final wish is to gift her granddaughter a special quilt. With a minimal set, this rich story is performed with Grandma’s quilt and a bag of rags that each tells a story of a specific person or time in her life. The play begins around the 1920’s, travels through both World Wars and ends on a Christmas morning. Production uses recorded voices and lighting to create the sensory realities of the time periods.
