    For tickets and more details visit berkeleyrep.org Written by Marcus Gardley Directed by Patricia McGregor A co-production with Yale Repertory Theatre January 31–March 16, 2014 Berkeley Rep proudly presents the world premiere of a new play commissioned from an Oakland native. Sensuous, witty, heartbreaking, and uplifting—The House that will not Stand by Marcus Gardley unearths a story about free women of color in 1836 New Orleans, where black Creole women entered into common-law marriages with rich white men. But the house that Beartrice built—on a foundation of wealth, freedom, and secrets—threatens to collapse after her man mysteriously dies and her three unwed daughters realize that his money could cost them the people they love. Directed by Patricia McGregor, The House that will not Stand is humorous and gripping family drama told in a rich and lyrical river of words.
