It’s late 1960, and warm for November in Louisiana. The southern air is thick with the tensions of a changing nation. Caroline Thibodeaux continues her work as a maid in the muggy basement of the Gellmans, a Jewish family still rocked by the sudden death of a wife, and mother. Embittered by the limitations of her blackness and tired from a life of servitude, she finds little joy in her life. When she asks for a raise her bosses are unable to give, Caroline finds every relationship in her life strained to the point of breaking.

Presented with the generous support of Weber County RAMP, and Ogden City Arts
