Arkansas Repertory Theatre

Arkansas Repertory Theatre exists to produce a diverse body of theatrical work of the highest artistic standards. With a focus on dramatic storytelling that illuminates the human journey, The Rep entertains, engages and enriches local and regional audiences of all ages and backgrounds. 

  • The Rep is the state's largest non-profit professional theatre.

  • Ticket sales account for less than half of what it costs to create a MainStage production.

  • The Rep maintains extensive arts in education programs, both in Central Arkansas and across the state, reaching more than 12,000 young people each year.

More than 70,000 patrons experience The Rep's work annually, making The Rep an economic engine for downtown Little Rock. 

Four generations of African-American women gather to celebrate their beloved, outrageous matriarch’s 90th birthday. The trouble is, recently widowed MaDear would rather watch her soap operas and read her Bible than blow out the candles on her cake. Tempers flare and ugly secrets are revealed in this furiously fractured family portrait. Yet, even in the midst of so much turmoil, humor bites its way through the cycles of guilt and blame passed on from mothers to daughters. We invite you to join the cast and crew for a panel discussion about this production and more.
