Crumbs From the Table of Joy

Keen Company is thrilled to produce the first New York revival of Crumbs From the Table of Joy! This break-through play by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage will be directed by Colette Robert and presented with the support of Rosalind Productions.

Set against the social politics of the 1950s, this charming, funny, and moving play follows 17-year-old Ernestine Crump as she adjusts to life after the passing of her beloved mother. In search of spiritual answers, Ernestine’s father relocates the family from Pensacola to Brooklyn where the Crumps must navigate a changing family dynamic, an unwelcoming neighborhood, and a shifting set of American ideals. Crumbs From the Table of Joy questions the limits of escapism and the power of everyday hope.

ASL Interpreted performance on Thursday March 9th at 7pm and Audio Described performance on Saturday March 11th at 2pm. Talkbacks and special events to be announced.
