The Guthrie Theater Presents a Full Circle Theater Company production of UNDER THIS ROOF by Barbara Kingsley World Premiere directed by James A. Williams in The Dowling Studio “This is a love story. It’s about mature love, marriage, romantic love, and familial love,” says director James Williams. Set in the late 1940s against the backdrop of post-WWII recovery in America, this four- character, two-act play takes place in the segregated black neighborhood of Central Cleveland, where characters Mamie and Raymond Warren reside. Mamie desperately needs household help after her husband has a serious accident. On the recommendation of a friend, Mamie hires a down-on-her-luck woman named Bessie, whose arrival brings surprises and new challenges. In this setting, Under this Roof explores themes of mature love, family, disability, and race on an ever-shifting axis, with often-unexpected comic, painful, and heartfelt results.
