calendar icon23 Mar 2021
Lincoln, Neb.--Nebraska Repertory Theatre, in collaboration with the St. Louis Black Repertory Company, presents Samm-Art Williams’ critically acclaimed play “Home.” “Home” is produced by the Black Rep and directed by its founder and producing director Ron Himes.
Performances are virtual and will stream April 7-10 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee performance on April 11 at 2 p.m. Tickets are free but must be reserved at http://nebraskarep.org.
“Our collaboration with The St. Louis Black Repertory Company affords our audience an opportunity to see quality works that might not otherwise be available to our community,” said Christina Kirk, Nebraska Rep executive director.
Home by Samm-Art Williams is a coming-of-age story centered around Cephus Miles, a gentle farm boy in the small town of Cross Roads, South Carolina. When Cephus discovers his devotion to the land isn’t enough, he embarks on a journey to the big city where he learns about life and how challenging it is to stay true to himself and how difficult it is to find a place to call home. “Home” was a Tony Award nominee for Best Play in 1980.
“Ron Himes is an award winning, nationally recognized regional theater director,” says Nebraska Rep Artistic Director Andy Park. “I can’t wait for our audience to see this powerful show.”
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nebraska Repertory Theatre transitioned their spring 2021 season online with virtual performances.
The spring season will conclude in May with “Dracula: Mina’s Quest,” Stephen Dietz’s adaptation of the Bram Stoker classic, which tells the tale from the perspective of a strong female heroine.
“Dracula: Mina’s Quest” features Nebraska Rep’s apprentice company and is directed by Associate Professor of Theatre David Long, who makes his Nebraska Rep directorial debut. The show runs May 6-9.
