2018 Season: Flyin' West

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at 8:00pm


Westport Country Playhouse will open its 2018 Season with an uplifting tale of bravery, pride, and sisterhood, “Flyin’ West,” written by Pearl Cleage and directed by Seret Scott, playing May 29 through June 16. This year marks the historic theater’s 88th season.

“’Flyin’ West’ is a magical experience, at once funny, suspenseful, gripping, and then completely, joyously satisfying,” said Mark Lamos, Playhouse artistic director. “The characters are richly delineated and the plot crafted to keep you on the edge of your seat. I’ve loved Pearl Cleage’s writing for years and am thrilled to have Seret Scott directing on our stage at last.”

“Flyin’ West” is set in 1898 as the Civil War is still a living memory and the all-black town of Nicodemus, Kansas, offers a refuge for many former slaves. At one homestead lives a family of courageous and sharp-witted women determined to make a place for themselves. They overcome tremendous odds in a heroic effort to escape the scars of the past.
