An original production from The Tubman Troupe is hitting the stage in Auburn.

A Gatherin’ Place was created by the theater group, after their staging of playwright Ntozake Shange’s For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf back in 2018. The current show is directed by Dr. Juhanna Rogers.

“When we first started the show, it was just kind of our monologues” says founding Troupe member Ashley McLeod. “We each wrote our own stories. Then if developed and Juhanna had put a storyline to it so it’s just about these women telling their stories and Ms. Paulette who once represented Ntozake Shange’s now represents just that woman in every woman’s life that gave her life lessons and good advice.”
