Blackberry Daze

Performance Dates

It is the end of “The Great War”, and a small Virginia town is rocked by secrets and seduction as Herman Camm, a provocative gambler, weaves his magic on the lives of three unsuspecting women, Mae Lou and her daughter Carrie, and Pearl, a blues singer at the local juke joint.  TC Carson (Living Single) and Roz White (Black Pearl Sings!) lead an exciting ensemble of Washington’s most eclectic and exciting talent. This musical adaptation of Ruth P. Watson’s romantic mystery thriller (Blackberry Days of Summer) is a world premiere with Thomas W. Jones II (Three Sistahs, Bessie’s Blues) direction and William Knowles’ dazzling period score.
