A Boston Premiere by Kirsten Greenidge

Following this fall’s smash hit THE BLUEST EYE, Company One presents THE GIBSON GIRL, a quirky new comedy from the award-winning director-writer team of Victoria Marsh and Kirsten Greenidge. Ruth is the mother of twin girls with notably different skin colors. When her adolescent daughters begin to ask questions about their past, Ruth turns to a $10 psychic for guidance. But the supernatural reveals more than Ruth expected, including the scandalous secret that she has kept hidden for years. Charged with velocity and wit, THE GIBSON GIRL continues the dialogue about color, class, and opportunity in America.
