Front Porch Society, a World Premiere by Melda Beaty.
Directed by Eileen J. Morris.
May 11, 2017. Runs: May 11 – June 4, 2017.

It’s November 4, 2008 in Marks, Mississippi, and America is on the eve of electing its first black president.

But what does that mean to 4 elderly women in this rural town, especially Carrie Honey, the town’s “overseer,” as she grieves the anniversary of her son’s tragic death amidst the town’s excitement over Barack Obama.

After years of failed attempts to seek justice, Carrie has grown bitter and no longer interested in life’s celebrations, until a scandal at the cemetery rocks this historic day, and a past secret is revealed that somehow restores her faded faith.

The Ensemble Theatre’s 2016-2017 Season is sponsored in part by grants from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance, Texas Commission on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts. United Airlines is the exclusive airline sponsor for The Ensemble Theatre.
