Mississippi Summer, a play about the 1960’s civil rights movement written by PAGES’ Art Feinglass, and developed in part at PAGES, had a successful run in Seattle in the fall. The play will have staged readings at The Lambs Club, 3 West 51st Street, on Wednesday evening, February 7 at 7 p.m. and Saturday afternoon, February 10 at 2 p.m. The readings will include performances by PAGES’ Victoria Freedman, Mark Gordon, Sharlene Hartman, Jason Duval Hunter, Jillie Simon and Rocco Spoon.
Mississippi Summer focuses on the friendship between Stokely Carmichael, the charismatic SNCC leader who launched the Black Power movement, and a young Jewish volunteer from New York who joined the struggle against racism and segregation. The play is based on the playwright’s personal experience as a civil rights worker in Jackson, Mississippi in 1965 and on the journal he kept at the time.
