    About This Production

    Black Cypress Bayou

    FEB 10 – MAR 17, 2024

    WORLD PREMIERE
    AUDREY SKIRBALL KENIS THEATER

    Written by Kristen Adele Calhoun
    Directed by Tiffany Nichole Greene
    Featuring Amber Chardae Robinson, Brandee Evans, Angela Lewis & Kimberly Scott

    On a hot summer night in Texas, Vernita Manifold summons her two daughters down to the bayou with a secret too big to keep. The richest, meanest man in town is dead, and the Manifold women know more than they’re saying. As secrets begin to surface, the bonds between the women, their town, and the legacy of their ancestors all come to a head. Black Cypress Bayou is a hilarious, suspenseful world premiere about loyalty, healing, and comeuppance.

    Recipient of the Edgerton Foundation New Play Award. Major support for this world premiere production provided by the Edgerton Foundation New Play Production Fund. This production is made possible, in part, by support from Cast Iron Entertainment.
