$ pay what you can
When successful film actress Venus Kettle returns to Indianola, Mississippi to her mother’s home going, she is greeted by her sisters with a wide range of emotions, from enthusiastic glee to cold-shoulder resentment.  After airing incidents of sexual abuse in her childhood home a few months prior to their mother’s death, Venus can’t escape the rippling effects of her confession or the telling of family business.  Exploring abortion in Mississippi during the 1980s, this uneasy sibling reunion and the possibility of Venus’ brother, who is incarcerated in a facility in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, comes home for the funeral and forces the Kettle family to recall the incest issues stemming from their household. Professional Stage Reading coordinated by Akin Babatunde.
