We are TRIBE NINE

SOON COMING L.A.: August Wilson's masterpiece 'Joe Turner's Come and Gone.'

“A DRAMA OF INDISPUTABLE GREATNESS. It is magically larger than life and exactly, precisely life size.” 

--- The New York Times.

Coming to the famed Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, California, 'Joe Turner's Come And Gone,' under the direction of Phylicia Rashad, is sure to be an experience not to be missed!

IT’S AUGUST 1911 as the Great Migration brings a revolving band of strangers to the door of Seth and Bertha Holly’s Pittsburgh boarding house. Lost souls migrating to the industrial North in search of work, a new life, somewhere to belong.

In this historic drama, part of ten celebrated works chronicling the African-American experience of the 20th Century, two-time Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award® winner August Wilson says “They arrive carrying Bibles and guitars, their pockets lined with dust and fresh hope.”

With so many forces at work — mystical, emotional, financial — and the looming fear that Joe Turner will spirit them away back to the oppressive South — this unlikely family of strangers must forge new identities together or alone in this extraordinary drama helmed by Tony Award® winner Phylicia Rashad (director of last season’s triumph A Raisin in the Sun at the Kirk Douglas Theatre).
