Directed by multiple award-winning poet, playwright and director Marcus Gardley and starring Broadway veteran Harriett D. Foy as Nina Simone, this play with music written by Christina Ham is one of the most talked about and produced plays in recent years. It’s September 16, 1963. The day after the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. This event led Nina Simone to shift her career from artist to artist-activist as she believed, “An artist’s responsibility is to reflect the times.” Nina Simone - Four Women uses the framework of one of her most blistering songs – “Four Women” – to give voice to a group of women who suffered from self-hatred due to the different hues of their skin: Aunt Sarah, Sephronia, Sweet Thing and Peaches. This production includes some of Nina Simone’s most popular Civil Rights anthems such as “Mississippi Goddam,” “Go Limp,” and “Young, Gifted, and Black” to look at an artist and the women around her as their journey leads them down a path of discovery and healing.
