Mahogany Ensemble Theatre presents the play Tidewater by Sheri Bailey, capturing the history of several close-knit African-American families in a country town in Virginia. This production takes place September 22 & 23 at the East Bank Theatre, directed by Robert Alford II. Tidewater is a unique, multi-layered, positive portrayal of African-American life spun with richly poetic language and lyrical images.

The play spans from 1927 to the 21st century. In the first act, "A Summer Romance," a remarkable friendship between two young women is tested by a complex love triangle. "Summer Dreams," the second act, revolves around a young woman fighting to hold on to her hard-won sense of peace when the one true love of her life returns after a long absence. In "A Summer Memory," the second act, a middle-aged writer remembers the summer she discovered her artistic voice through her friendship with a young man almost ten years older.

Mr. Alford worked closely with playwright Sheri Bailey since the play's genesis in 1988 as a one-act play produced in the first annual new play festival at Los Angeles’ Inner City Cultural Center.
