Program for Sunday, January 10, 2021
On January 10, we’re pleased to offer you a short play written and produced by Candace Perry. Isn’t It Romantic interrogates the white privilege that would imagine a Southern plantation as a romantic setting for a wedding. Yes, destination weddings are still a “thing” and restored plantations are popular—albiet controversial—tourism destinations, as a recent NY Times article attests. Following the performance, there will be a “talk back” with the author and actors, who include Sallie Tighe, Cynthia Harrington, and Racine Oxtoby.
