An all-female tribute to aging gracefully and...gorgeously!


In another life, performance artist Anna Campbell, now 65, sparked controversy when she bared it all in an iconic feminist critique. When a new women's theatre festival asks to re-stage the piece, Anna's dreams of reclaiming the spotlight are dashed when she meets the youthful adult entertainer who will be recreating her role. But when they set aside their pride and assumptions, the two very different women find they both have just as much to learn as they have to teach.


Playwright Pearl Cleage, one of America's foremost Black writers, looks back on a lifetime of her own activism with humor and grace in this multi-generational dramatic comedy.
