Oscar Ritchie’s last play before renovation

Alexia Harris

For the next two weeks, Kent State’s African Community Theatre will be featuring its last production before the renovation of Oscar Ritchie Hall.

“Long Time Since Yesterday,” written by P.J. Gibson, is an all-female drama that deals with the relationships among five women who reunite at the funeral of a former college roommate who committed suicide.

The 1985 Audelco Award-winning play looks at the lives of contemporary black women who fight with their personal problems in the 1980s.

Director Fran Dorsey said the play is for mature audiences because of the adult themes and language and is not recommended for children under 16 years old.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $7 for students and senior citizens.

The play debuts at 8 p.m. tonight and will also be performed Saturday and April 20 and 21 at 8 p.m. and at 3 p.m. Sunday April 22 in the African Community Theatre in Oscar Ritchie Hall.

For additional information, Fran Dorsey can be reached at (330) 672-0151 or (330) 672-2300.
