Waiting to be Invited
Drama/Comedy by S. M. Shephard-Massat
It is the summer of 1964 in Atlanta, GA. Four middle-aged black women, co-workers from a local doll factory, travel by city bus to a “whites only” eating establishment inside a downtown Atlanta department store. Their purpose is to “test” their newly acquired civil rights handed down by the Supreme Court ruling outlawing racial segregation in eating establishments. This funny, touching play received the Kennedy Center Roger L. Stevens Award for New Playwrights and the Adrienne Kennedy Award for Most Promising Young Dramatist.
