The play ponders what happens when citizens move beyond lines drawn by society to forge their destiny. Two young Alabama women, Dorothy and Joanie, will find themselves trying to navigate through the waters of Jim Crow in 1962 toward a friendship.
“The Dividing Line” by Karen D. Culley examines what happens when the potential response to someone crossing societal lines is a physical, financial or emotional demise. Audience members will examine whether the courage of a few in the 1960s is still needed in the 21st century.
Directed by Reuben Tapp, the play features Elizabeth Doohey Anthony, Gwen Brennick, Doug Curry, Andrea Daszkiewicz, Kesha Hartzog, Richard Kendrick, Ashona Pulliam and Shala Wilson.
Tickets cost $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Senior and student tickets are $5 on Oct. 28. Visit mpactoday.com for information.
