About the event
In 1870s New Orleans, the Black and Creole women of the Pitot House made two African-American men Governor of Louisiana. Did they use politics or magic to do it?
Marie, GODDAMN MARIE! is a new play by Yolanda K. Wilkinson
“There is just so much hurt, disappointment, and oppression one can take... The line between reason and madness grows thinner.”
Marie, GODDAMN MARIE!(formerly TQB), is a story about creole and black women (age range from 10-70) striving to claim power and agency over their lives through political and supernatural means in 1870s New Orleans.
