"When Pearl meets Susannah, an academic song collector for the Library of Congress who scours jails to find inmates who can record the soon-to-be-lost art form and keep it alive forever, the two women embark on a journey that teaches them about themselves and each other while walking a fine line between exposure and exploitation. Susannah bargains for Pearl's parole and arranges for several private performances in New York City where Pearl is a hit and performs more than 100 performances of her beloved folk songs."
"Julie Elizabeth Beroes is happy to be returning to her Pittsburgh roots with this New Horizon Theater production and said she drew from the amazing work of actress Diane Lane and the direction of play director Linda Haston to prepare to play Susannah Mullally. 'The story is compelling and poignant,' said Beroes, who holds a BFA in theater arts with an emphasis in acting from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. 'Susannah is a woman in a man’s world who wants to better herself and prove herself. Even though it is set in 1933-34, the play is relevant today because there’s still imprisonment of women in many ways.'" New Pittsburgh Courier by Genea L. Webb
