Following the mysterious death of her white lover, Beartrice Albans, a free woman of color in New Orleans in 1836, imposes a six-month period of mourning on herself and her three daughters. But as the summer heat intensifies, a handsome bachelor comes calling, a family secret is revealed, and the foundation of her household is rocked to its core.
Poet-playwright Marcus Gardley made his Yale Rep debut with the 2006 world premiere of dance of the holy ghosts. His new play, The House that will not Stand, is directed by Patricia McGregor, who recently staged the critically acclaimed Hurt Village by Katori Hall in New York.
