Written and directed by local, award-winning playwright Cherryl Floyd-Miller, Settling Sophia tells the story of a white woman in the American South. Chelsea Bridges has not been born, yet she is able to peek ahead at the circumstances of her life. She will have a husband and two
children; a best friend who is black, a grandfather who is a respected bigot and a mother who suffers a mental breakdown.
When she herself discovers the town secret -- that her biological father is black (and worse, that he is also her best friend's father) -- she must confront her own perceptions about race, blood ... and betrayal. Will she
decide to be born?
This show will move you and make you think about life and your own perspectives - just what theatre is supposed to do. This show involves mature themes and language, but the story is one that everyone needs to hear.
