This eloquent, animated, and bittersweet new play recounts the story of five friends at the end of the Harlem Renaissance. Like the heartwrenching harmonies and lyrics of the blues, their individual stories create a song of intense feelings. Blues for an Alabama Sky is an emotionally charged piece which simultaneously laments lost dreams, celebrates life, and looks toward the future with hope.
