A Visit From “Joe Turner’s Come And Gone” At CTC
From 1982 until 2005, August Wilson wrote a series of ten plays about the Black experience in Pittsburgh during the 20th Century - with one play set in each decade.
The series is known as the Century Cycle - and on Friday, the second play in the Cycle, “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone,” premieres at Chattanooga Theatre Centre.
The production is part of the monthlong Chattanooga Festival of Black Arts and Ideas: Juneteenth Independence Day, celebrating the contributions by artists of African descent in music, dance, theatre, visual arts, film and literature.
Alicia Haymer is the director of “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone” - and Shelia Wofford plays Bertha Holley.
