Theatre on the Square
Joe Turner’s Come and Gone is set in a Pittsburgh boarding house in 1911. Owners Seth and Bertha Holly play host to a makeshift family of people who come to stay, some for days, some longer, during the Great Migration of the early twentieth century when descendants of former slaves moved in large numbers from the South toward the industrial cities of the North in search of new jobs, new lives and new beginnings. The story is richly detailed, joyous, sad, and always hopeful.

“[A] drama of indisputable greatness”
“This play disarms its audiences with folksy chitchat and homespun comedy before it dawns on them that what they’re watching — in its subliminal sweep and symmetry — is close to epic poetry.”
