Company One Presents
Ntozake Shange’s "Spell #7"

Company One continues its season with the 25th anniversary production of "Spell #7," by Obie Award winner Ntozake Shange. Performances are October 28 – November 20 at the Boston Center for the Arts.

The year is 1979 and the setting is a bar frequented by African American artists and musicians. Shange's passionate evocation of black culture suppressed provides an intimate look into the lives of nine struggling performers seeking acceptance, validation and self-respect in a harsh world of stereotypes.  As the evening of sinewy, erotic poetry unfolds, music and magic fuse to reveal secrets, nightmares and hope. 

"Spell #7" will be directed by Summer L. Williams, director of last season's "Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train," which won the 2004 Elliott Norton Award for Best Fringe Production by a Local Company. 

Company One, the newest Theatre-in-Residence at the Boston Center for the Arts, has been recognized repeatedly for its innovative programming and diverse artists and audiences.
