Synopsis

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."

Customer Reviews

"This was a wonderful production to work on. The playwright was very helpful and even came to 2 of our performances to do a talkback with our audiences."
