Directed by Lara Marsh
6:30 p.m. Gallery Showing
7:30 p.m. Performance

(A part of Great Plains Theatre Conference's Neighborhood Tapestries series) 

A unique view of Omaha history thorugh the lens of Mildred D. Brown, matriarch and founder of the Omaha Star newspaper. The play journeys across four decards of Omaha history and explores the struggles and triumphs of a leader and a community in a time of great change, asking the question, "where do we need to go from here?" 

The play will be performed alongside a gallery installation of the same theme to be held at 6:30 p.m. next door to the Elks Club, at the Carver Bank Building, 2416 Lake St. and at the Union for Contemporary Art. 

The gallering showing is made possible through partnerships with the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art and the Union for Contemporary Art.
