The House That Will Not Stand by Marcus Gardley, Directed by Dr. Laura Hope

Inspired by Lorca's classic "The House of Bernarda Alba,"poet and playwright Marcus Gardley sets his adaptation in New Orleans in 1836. Following an era of French colonial rule and relative racial acceptance, Louisiana's 'free people of color' are prospering. When matriarch Beatrice's lover mysteriously dies, Beatrice imposes a six-month period of mourning on herself and her three daughters. But, as the summer heat intensifies, the foundations of freedom she has built for herself and their three unwed daughters begin to crumble. Society is changing, racial divides are growing and, as the members of the household turn on each other in their fight for survival, it could cost them everything.
