Keen Company is thrilled to present the first New York revival of Crumbs From the Table of Joy by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage and directed by Colette Robert!

Set against the social politics of the 1950s, this funny, insightful play follows 17-year-old Ernestine Crump as she adjusts to life after the passing of her beloved mother. In search of spiritual answers, Ernestine’s father relocates the family from Pensacola to Brooklyn where the Crumps must navigate a changing family dynamic, an unwelcoming neighborhood, and a shifting set of American ideals. 

Run time is approximately 2 hours, including a 10 minute intermission. Casting and additional creative team members will be announced at a later date.

Crumbs From the Table of Joy is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
