Wed 11/21: We Love Soul & Tofu Chitlin' Circuit Field Trip

Looking for something new to start your Holiday? Why not join We Love Soul & The Tofu Chitlin' Circuit for a special performance of Bulrusher by Eisa Davis at Congo Square Theater.

SYNPOSIS: Finalist! 2007 Pulitzer Prize in Drama
In 1955, in the redwood country north of San Francisco, a multiracial girl grows up in a predominantly white town whose residents pepper their speech with the historical dialect of Boontling.
Found floating in a basket on the river as an infant, Bulrusher is an orphan with a gift for clairvoyance that makes her feel like a stranger even amongst the strange: the taciturn schoolteacher who adopted her, the madam who runs her brothel with a fierce discipline, the logger with a zest for horses and women, and the guitar-slinging boy who is after Bulrusher's heart.

Just when she thought her world might close in on her, she discovers an entirely new sense of self when a black girl from Alabama comes to town. Passionate, lyrical, and chock full of down-home humor, this play is an unforgettable experience by a new, thrilling voice.

WHEN: Wednesday, November 21, 2012

WHERE: Pegusus Players - located at 4520 N. Beacon, Chicago, IL 60640

TIME: Mingle: 6:00 p.m. Curtain: 7:30 p.m.
