Showing in August, The first play in Reginald Edmund’s “City of the Bayou” collection, “Daughters of the Moon” follows a runaway slave girl and a former slave mistress who are seeking freedom from an oppressive past. The story follows them through their travails and perilous journey.
The play had its Houston premier run in May and is being re-mounted for its thought provoking message which brings to bare issues centered on race, slavery, violence, gender — all significant narratives in our modern society. In this second running within a year, it is hoped that Houstonians will not only enjoy the artistic content but take advantage of the opportunity to reflect on our history.
The play is directed by Timothy Eric, presented by the Nigerian American Multicultural Council and KEW Learning Academy with special support from Texas Southern University.
Show times are on Thursday August 10th and Friday August 11th at 7:30 pm, Saturday August 12th at 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm, and Sunday August 13th at 2:00 pm. Performances will hold at the impressive DeLUXE Theater in Houston’s Historical 5th Ward, located at 3303 Lyons Avenue, Houston, TX 77020.
General admission to the play is $20. Tickets can be purchased and seats reserved at www.thedeluxetheater.tix.com.
