North Star
North Star
AATE Distinguished Play Award (1999, Upper/Secondary)

"strong poetic streak, appealing characters ... and a sense of humor." —Chicago Sun-Times
By Gloria Bond Clunie.

Cast: 7m., 5w. (Doubling, multiracial.) Set in North Carolina in the 1960s, North Star is the story of Relia, an African-American girl, searching for her place to shine in both society and her personal life. The joyous innocence of Relia's summer is transformed by the rising tensions of the growing civil rights movement. Relia's parents are hotly divided between letting her participate in the demonstrations and shielding her from the harsh realities of the civil rights struggle and their community's battle for freedom. Relia's memories of magical moments stargazing with her father help guide her as she risks her life to be a part of the "Dream" and the "Big Freedom." Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes.
