"Black Nativity" at Penumbra Theatre

The Penumbra Theatre is performing "Black Nativity &mdash Hear Again the Christmas Story!" from November 28 to December 28, 2008. In this year's version, recently widowed Grandma Walker (who is swept up in the grief of loss) is surprised by family members who bring food, music, and laughter into the house. The production celebrates the bonds of family, the power of faith, and the strength of tradition.
