All Aunt Hagar’s Children

By Edward P Jones—a full production from Word for Word

November 16 - December 11, 2016 on Z Space's Main Stage

Set in 1950s Washington, D.C., this Noir tale spotlights a young Korean War vet who sets out to solve a murder and becomes entangled in a web of family history. Along the way, he is unsettled by another death—a young woman whose last words haunt him and his investigation.

Edward P. Jones evokes a neighborhood of vivid characters, telling a story about the strength of family and the choices that shape our lives.

Directed by Stephanie Hunt
Assistant Director Margo Hall
