I fell in love with Y York's playwriting in the 1970s. For its 25th Anniversary, our nationally acclaimed First Stage Children's Theater commissioned this play from York about an imaginative 9-year-old African-American girl with a confusing home life. Inspired by the childhood of 60-year-old Milwaukee artist Della Wells, it's the first production of a new “Wisconsin Cycle”—six premieres over six seasons meant to heighten awareness of our state's cultural history.
