About the Event

The Obsidian Theatre Festival comes back for our 4th annual season with the play "The Sisters Grey" by writer Lori Roper.

The Sisters Grey is a comedic drama that tells the story of two sisters-in-law – one Black and one Jewish, who both believe that their family histories of racial oppression require retribution and sacrifice from others.  A funeral sets the stage for turmoil when the true ownership of an heirloom ring which survived the Holocaust comes into question. As the family members grieve, old secrets begin to brew and controversy boils over in this play that investigates why we still question love outside our own tribe and argue over anguish.

The Sisters Grey, provides a true illumination of the relationships among African American and Jewish people.  In addition to an honest discussion about race, The Sisters Grey unveils the unspoken complexities within female relationships; especially those which are interracial - while embracing the clever role that humor can have in healing old wounds.
