PURE Theatre and the League of Women Voters Announce World Premiere of “Septima” by Patricia Williams Dockery
In cooperation with the League of Women Voters Charleston Area, PURE Theatre today announced the commission of a world premiere play about the life of Charleston native Septima Clark (right). The production, “Septima,” will run from March 9th to April 1st at the Cannon Street Arts Center. It was written by Patricia Williams Dockery.
Here’s out PURE describes the play:
“It is the day of Septima Clark’s 125th birthday. Septima, with the help of some old friends, reflects not only on her work as a Civil Rights leader and educator, but also on the moments of her life that shaped her into one of the most important figures in American history and inspired Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to call her the ‘Mother of the Movement.'”
Septima is directed by Sharon Graci, co-founder and Artistic Director of PURE Theatre.
Tickets range from $35 to $45. There will be two “Pay What You Will” Performances on March 9th and March 15th. There are a limited number of $10 tickets available at the door before every performance. Depending on availability, student rush tickets are available for $10 at the door before performances. “Septima” is also available through the All-Access Flex Pass, which includes tickets and reserved seats to every show along with a host of other benefits.
Additional information about “Septima” and the All-Access Flex Pass can be found on PURE’s website at puretheatre.org or by calling the box office at 843.723.4444 (Tuesday through Friday 1 pm – 4 pm).
