      Tell Martha Not to Moan

      The Union for Contemporary Art's Performing Arts Collective presents: Tell Martha Not to Moan, a new play written by Clinnesha D. Sibley and directed by Kathy Tyree. The play takes place in a family home in Detroit in 2007. As the presidential election campaign plays out on the national stage and the 40th commemoration of the Detroit Riot is marked, a series of memories takes us on a unique and personal journey with a devoted and desolate elderly couple. With compelling dialogue and complex relationships, Tell Martha Not to Moan is a glimpse into the changing world as viewed from one African American home. A reading of this play was presented on the mainstage at the 6th annual Great Plains Theatre Conference.
