THE OLD SETTLERWritten by John Henry Redwood
Directed by Ron OJ Parson
Featuring Cheryl Lynn Bruce, Alexis J. Rogers, Kelvin Roston, Jr. and Wandachristine
It’s Harlem in the spring of 1943. Elizabeth and Quilly are sisters of a certain age sharing their quiet lives together, but when they take in Husband Witherspoon, a handsome young boarder, their entire world changes abruptly. Husband, fresh from the country and adjusting to life in the big city, is on a desperate search for his missing fiancée, but ends up finding love in the most unlikely of places. Told with heartwarming sincerity, humor and a touch of poetry, The Old Settler paints a poignant picture of two women testing the bonds of sisterhood and finding the strength and forgiveness only family can offer.
The Old Settler runs two hours and 30 minutes including one 10-minute intermission.
