A play by Frank Dunham Jr.
It’s 1859 and in the heart of old New York is Cherry House, named after its proprietress, Miss Cherry. A proud and free African American entrepreneur in misogynistic, racist pre-Civil war America, Miss Cherry’s business is booming and life is good. Or so she thinks. Trouble comes to town when a Southern lowlife attacks one of Cherry House’s ladies, a runaway freed slave wanted for murder. Miss Cherry’s remarkable ability to navigate a hostile world is put to the test when she’s faced with backlash from the law, threats from a greedy bounty hunter and losing the man she loves by risking everything to do the right thing.
