"HEAT" Opens June 9 at Noyes Cultural Arts Center
Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre presents Heat, a searing family story that also warms the soul about three generations of African American women coping with the struggles of their daily lives and those of their close-knit, albeit sometimes volatile, family members. Their individual stories are intertwined with pathos and humor over family matters old and new, while they passionately search for answers they may never find.
Join us at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center, home of Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre, for this rivetingly performed drama, beautifully written by 2010-2011 3Arts fellow Marsha Estell, Evanston born, and resident playwright at Chicago Dramatists. HEAT was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson and a Black Theatre Alliance Award for Outstanding New Work. Other plays by Ms. Estell include Mama said there’ll be days like this - The History of the Girl Groups, Edge, Before I Wake, Big Butt Girls and Other Fantasies (A One person show). She is the recipient of an Illinois Arts Council Fellowship for Playwriting.
