In The Spirit – For Real

In the SpiritIn the Spirit

In the Spirit

In The Spirit – For Real is a powerful and compelling one-woman show by acclaimed solo performer Peggy Pettitt. Due to the AIDS epidemic, a feisty older woman with ferocious stamina is left alone to raise her nephew, an urban youth, gifted but on the edge. Pettitt plays multiple characters in a heart-to-heart conversation between generations. Brilliantly written, infused with hip-hop and jazz selections, In The Spirit – For Real is a powerful coming of age story that bathes the wounds of generational separation with a prescription for hope.
