Court’s Spotlight Reading Series aims to rediscover plays by writers of color largely missing from the American stage and absent from the traditional canon.

Free. Limited seating.

The Story: The Dance on Widow’s Row is a comedy about four widows who, despite the odds, are determined to find love. Set in a coastal community in eastern North Carolina, Magnolia, Annie, Simone, and Lois invite the area’s most eligible bachelors to an intimate soirée. Having already buried nine husbands altogether, the women are willing to defy small-town mores and endure vicious gossip if there’s a chance to meet Mr. Right tonight.

The Spotlight Reading series is made possible in part by a grant from

The Joyce Foundation
