Word for Word
Stephanie is thrilled to be directing All Aunt Hagar's Children by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edward P. Jones with Margo Hall assistant directing. The cast is extraordinary and includes actors Khary Moye, Velina Brown, Margo Hall, Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe, Kehinde Koyejo, Jia Taylor, Joel Mullennix, and Sheila Balter. The production team includes Nadine Mozon, Lynne Soffer, and Andrea Weber. The story, a neighborhood noir, takes place in 1953 in Washington, D.C. It centers around a young man, a Korean War veteran, who is asked by his mother and his aunts to figure out the unsolved murder of a childhood friend. The young man also is haunted by the memory of a mysterious woman who collapses in his arms on a street corner. He dreams of escaping his everyday world to look for gold in Alaska. Cultures intersect in surprising ways in this neighborhood. It is a profoundly American story, full of humor, pathos, and exquisite language.

All Aunt Hagar's Children, a Word for Word/Z Space production, runs November 19 though December 11 at Z Space/Theater Artaud.

Stephanie recently appeared in Word for Word's production of Colm Tóibín's story Silence and Emma Donoghue's story Night Vision.
