About Crumbs From The Table of Joy

Keen Company is thrilled to present the first New York revival of Crumbs from the Table of Joy by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage and directed by Colette Robert!

Set against the social politics of the 1950s, this charming, funny, and moving play follows 17-year-old Ernestine Crump as she adjusts to life after the passing of her beloved mother. In search of spiritual answers, Ernestine’s father relocates the family from Pensacola to Brooklyn where the Crumps must navigate a changing family dynamic, an unwelcoming neighborhood, and a shifting set of American ideals. Crumbs from the Table of Joy questions the limits of escapism and the power of everyday hope.

Historical, Poignant, Not predictable, Great acting

See it if Family drama told from teen’s perspective and acted beautifully makes you really feel for each character. Thoughtful early Nottage play

Don’t see it if While making historical points it’s a multidimensional story about a black family with throwaway one dimensional mentions of a Jewish family

Enchanting, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing, Relevant

See it if Loved how Lynn explored grief & the transition of a family moving to Brooklyn with two teenage girls embracing with a dad lost & cold.

Don’t see it if If not a fan of Lynn Nottage, her characters are rich and authentic! Historical lifestyle in the 50’s of a black family’s migration north.

Intelligent, Outstanding direction by colette robert, Funny, Great acting ensemble, Absorbing

See it if you want to see the play that introduced Lynn Nottage to the New York Theatre scene. You enjoy watching an excellent acting ensemble.

Don’t see it if you don't like small, intimate productions. This play has one set and no flashy pyrotechnics.
