This play was written by Lynn Notage. It tells the story of a 35 year old black seamstress living in 1905. It deals with with intense themes of race, women issues, and economic structures.
For this play I was brought on as a composer. I worked with the director and sound designer to help create the aural landscape of the play. I wrote a number of incidental rag time pieces to be played over the system and piano coached the actress who played Mayme, Mantra Walker, who played live music within the world of the play.
