THE RELEVANCE OF THE OLD SETTLER
THE POWER OF WOMEN
ON FEELING BOLD
BREAKING OUT OF THE BOX
The Old Settler features The Billie veterans Pauletta Pearson Washington (Two Trains Running, Autumn), Denise Burse (Brownsville Song: b side for Trey, House of Payne), and Warner Miller (Luke Cage), as well as newcomer and Juilliard graduate Maechi Aharanwa(An Octoroon).
Set in 1943 Harlem, The Old Settler focuses on two sisters' struggle to afford their rising rent. Faced with a choice between giving up their apartment and renting out their extra room to a stranger, they decide to take a chance on a boarder, newly arrived from the South. In equal measures funny and poignant, The Old Settler is a glimpse into the heart of an American City.
