Set in Brooklyn in 1950, recently widowed Godfrey and his teenage daughters, Ernestine and Ermina, have moved from Florida to Brooklyn. Godfrey has turned to Father Divine for guidance, the girls haven’t, and their mother’s sister arrives to promote communism, sexual freedom and the fight against racial discrimination. Into the mix comes a stepmother, Gerte, white, and an emigre from the horrors of Germany.  “The 1950s was such a moment in American history in which I felt so much change…everything I had seen was in black and white.  And I wanted to make it colorful” - Lynn Nottage.  

"Crumbs from the Table of Joy" is written by Lynn Nottage and directed by Saundra McClain.

For mature audiences.
