The Nacirema Society Requests
the Honor of Your Presence
at the Celebration of
Their First One Hundred Years

Written by Pearl Cleage
Directed by Phillip Royston Burgess

Every year since emancipation, the Nacirema Society of Montgomery, Alabama has introduced debutantes to a world of wealth, privilege and social responsibility.  This year, at The Society's centennial--with young love brewing, old flames simmering and national media attention on hand--what would dare to go awry? Theatre Morgan presents Pearl Cleage's  sparkling romantic comedy that mixes social change with a delicious dish of scandal. 

Pearl Cleage is the award-winning playwright of Blues for an Alabama Sky and  Flyin' West.  She is also a New York Times best-selling author of What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day.  In The Nacirema Society. . . , Ms. Cleage invites you into a glamorous world where folks still dress for dinner. For the ladies of the Nacirema Society, bus boycotts and freedom marches don't hold a candle to the importance of making the perfect entrance...or plotting the perfect blackmail.

Student matinee is on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at 10:30 AM.  Reserve and purchase tickets for school groups by calling 443-885-4440.
