We are happy to announce that our staged reading performance of Having Our Say has been rescheduled.

Evelyn Albino directs returning guest artist Susan Watson Turner as Sadie Delaney and introducing Drusilla Kinzoni as Dr. Bessie Delaney.

Adapted for the stage by Emily Mann, Having Our Say is an enthralling full-length play based on the bestselling book by Sarah (Sadie) Delany and Elizabeth (Bessie) Delany. This powerful production revolves around the remarkable lives of African-American sisters, Sadie and Bessie Delany, who both surpass the age of 100. Their extraordinary journey unfolds as they share their personal experiences, which include growing up as the daughters of a former slave who became a respected professor, establishing successful careers, and integrating a New York suburb.

During its celebrated run on Broadway, Having Our Say captivated audiences and received a Tony Award nomination for Best Play. Through this powerful adaptation of the Delany sisters’ book, audiences are invited to witness a compelling tale that transcends race and gender, offering a profound reflection on American history as seen through the eyes of two delightful and unforgettable women.
