The First Breeze of Summer by Leslie Lee

Directed by T.O. Associate Artist Justin Anderson

The original production of The First Breeze of Summer, directed by NEC founder Douglas Turner Ward, received a Tony Award nomination for Best Play during its 1975 run at Broadway's Palace Theatre. The play takes place over the course of one sweltering weekend in June, as the struggles of three generations of the Edwards family collide. Gremmar, the family matriarch, looks back on her past and considers its legacy for her children and grandchildren as they confront the choices that will define their futures. Lee's Obie Award-winning play is billed as "a timeless portrait of family bonds and coming of age."

Leslie Lee passed away on January 20, 2014 at the age of 83. 

April 21 @ 7 PM, Balzer Theater at Herren's, 84 Luckie Street, Atlanta, GA 30303
