The Two River Players return for a new series of digital community readings, featuring Two River Theater staff members, plus a few surprise guests! Set in South Carolina during the Summer of 1918, Alice Childress’ Wedding Band follows the interracial love story between Julia, a black seamstress, and Herman, a white baker. As the couple dreams of a future where their love can flourish, they must contend with hate from both black and white communities as well as a looming health crisis.

Please note: This reading contains adult language including racial slurs.
