Pretty Fire by Charlayne Woodard

The African Heritage Cultural Arts Center celebrates Women's History Month with the NAACP award-winning play Pretty Fire at the Sandrell Rivers Theater. The play features women in lead production roles — including director, stage manager and producer — and is part of the Center's 45th anniversary celebration. Pretty Fire, winner of two NAACP Theatre Awards — Best Play and Best Playwright — is the first play of a trilogy written by playwright and actress Charlayne Woodard. In five autobiographical vignettes, the play is a touching story of an African American family through three generations of love, struggle and triumph. The one-woman show shares the story of Woodard's premature birth and her growing up in Albany, New York, while the Ku Klux Klan burned crosses in her grandparents' town in Georgia. The cast includes the lead role played by actress Trittney Huzzie. Pretty Fire is the directorial debut of Carbonell-nominated actress, and winner of the Broadway World Award for Best Actress, Khadijah Rolle.
