The House That Will Not Stand

 



Set in 1836 New Orleans, a free black creole woman sees her house - built on a foundation of wealth, secrets and dearly bought freedom - threaten to collapse after the death of her wealthy white husband.

The Off-Broadway production of The House That Will Not Stand closed August 19, 2018. For current Off-Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

From the producers: In the heat of summer, Louisiana passed from France to the United States. On the eve of the transfer, in a house in mourning, freedom hangs in the balance for a steely widow and her three eligible daughters, all free women of color.

Marcus Gardley's play "Every Tongue Confess" was nominated for the Steinberg New Play Award, the Charles MacArthur Award and was a recipient of the Edgerton Foundation New Play Award. His other works include "And Jesus Moonwalks the Mississippi," "dance of the holy ghost," and the musical "On The Levee." "The House That Will Not Stand" is inspired by Federico García Lorca's "The House of Bernarda Alba".

The cast includes Helen Hayes Award nominee Joniece Abbott-Pratt (NBC's "Blindspot," Netflix's "Luke Cage"), Juliana Canfield, Helen Hayes Award nominee Harriett D. Foy ("Amélie"), Helen Hayes Award winner Lynda Gravátt ("This Flat Earth"), Nedra McClyde, Marie Thomas and Tony Award nominee Michelle Wilson ("Sweat"). Obie Award winner Lileana Blain-Cruz directs.
