It is 1963 and the USA is focused on the movement for African American Civil Rights; the “weird” Watson family travels from their home in Flint, Michigan to stay with relatives in Birmingham, Alabama. While there, the Watsons and the rest of the country are changed forever by a tragic moment in American history, the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church during which four young black girls are killed. Told with compassion and humor, this all-American story of family love and perseverance will captivate audiences of adults, older children and teens. (“Hilarious and Heartwarming” The New York Times) Durham Family Theatre’s 5thseason opening production is NOT TO BE MISSED!
