Page 73 presents the world premiere of STEW by Zora Howard. Last season Page 73 produced Michael R. Jackson’s A Strange Loop (with Playwrights Horizons) and Mia Chung’s Catch as Catch Can, both included on Top 10 Lists of 2019 and 2018 theatre, respectively.
In STEW, Mama is up early to prepare an important meal, and even with her family on hand to help, time is running short. Tensions simmer with three generations of Tucker women under one roof, but things come to a boil as the violence hovering around the periphery of their lives begins to intrude upon the sanctity of Mama’s kitchen.
Past playwrights premiered by Page 73 include Tony Award nominees Heidi Schreck and Quiara Alegría Hudes, MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Samuel D. Hunter, and Obie and Lortel Award Winner Clare Barron.
