Last Night and the Night Before

The College of Charleston School of the Arts’ Department of Theatre and Dance presents Last Night and the Night Before, written by Donnetta Lavinia Grays and directed by Nakeisha Daniel.  When Monique and her 10-year-old daughter, Samantha, show up unexpectedly on her sister’s Brooklyn doorstep, it’s the beginning of the end for Rachel and her partner Nadima’s orderly lifestyle. Monique is on the run from deep trouble, her husband Reggie is nowhere to be seen, and Samantha becomes ever haunted by the life in southern Georgia she was forced to leave behind. Poetic, dark and often deeply funny, Last Night and the Night Before explores the power, necessity, and beauty of loss. Performances are February 22nd, 24th, 27th, and 28th at 7:30 pm, and February 23rd at 2:00pm, in the Emmet Robinson Theatre.
