A Performance by Ally Theatre Company of an original play written by Doug Robinson. Welcome to Sis’s, reimagines the story of Sis’s Tavern in North Brentwood. The play takes place during the 1920-30s and explores the meaning of community, the commonplace, and how it was shaped through racial segregation. Blending the genres of original comedy and drama, and based on historical inspiration, this play presents a unique view of racial inequality to tell a story of a time in America when racial oppression existed without question.
