Synopsis: Sowa’s Red Gravy is a play with music, filled with passion, humor, wit and insight. Revitalizing the tradition of southern folklore, the play captures the sound, heart, and fury of African-American culture. Its style and content are similar to the works of the Harlem Renaissance writers Zora Neale Hurston and Langston Hughes. Narrated by Sowa, a 110-year old wise woman, who resides in Harlem in quantum time, Sowa recounts her life before the emancipation and claims to have lived many lives as varied as a white Hollywood film star, an African Warrior and a Louisiana Voodoo Queen. Sowa’s storytelling is so captivating that you are sure to be convinced she is telling the truth.
