Two years into Reconstruction, four girls contemplate a future and their place in the new post-slavery society. Deftly written with a sly humor, Sweet Maladies illuminates the possibilities that have existed between races since slavery’s abolition and confronts the baggage that mitigates those possibilities. As the four girls—three sisters and their former mistress—grapple with power and place, they reveal secrets and betrayals, resulting in a shocking and bittersweet conclusion.Tickets and info: brava.org; (415) 641-7657 x1
