City of Good Abode
Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Martin Luther King, Jr., ASSASSINATED! Words that shocked a nation in April 1968.  Now, through a world premiere co-presentation of the award-winning play, City of Good Abode (CGA), Houston audiences can revisit the historic strike by Memphis sanitation workers that led to King’s death. Playwright Joshua Ford’s recounting of the back story to this confrontation also explores the relationship between America’s African American community and the nation’s Jewry, many of whom stood in solidarity with their black “brethren” while others’ support was less enthusiastic. This co-production by the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center (the J) and The Ensemble Theatre of City of Good Abode will be presented at the J’s Kaplan Theatre in an exclusive, limited run of four performances, September 12-15, 2019.
