The Rep: Gee's Bend

Arkansas Repertory Theatre: The Rep will present the true story of the famous quiltmakers of Gee's Bend, Ala. with the stage production Gee's Bend by Elyzabeth Gregory Wilder. This heartwarming and powerful production opens Friday and runs through Feb. 10, supported and sponsored by The Design Group, Philander Smith College, Arora, Delta Airlines and the Little Rock Convention and Visitor's Bureau. Gee's Bend is based on a true story, and follows the life of Sadie Pettway, her family and the women in her sewing circle as they turn to quilting to provide comfort and creative expression to their lives. What begins as a labor of love soon turns into a spiritual and artistic awakening. Show times are as follows: Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday evening performances at 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday evening performances at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinee performances at 2 p.m. The Jan. 30 performance will be sign interpreted for the hearing impaired.
