Alice Childress’ unforgettable drama about the romance between Julia, a Black seamstress, and Herman, her white lover, searingly addresses prejudice and ignorance in early 20th-century America. Set in the Deep South at the end of World War I during the flu epidemic, it is one of American drama’s most mercilessly revealing tales of interracial love. The play traces a devoted couple’s caustic confrontations with anti-miscegenation laws, family racism, community disapproval, and their own long-buried feelings.
