Greenbelt Arts Center presents a workshop reading of The Quadroon and the Dove, a new work by Charlene A. Donaghy. This play is in preparation for its Off-Broadway debut.

In 1840s New Orleans, Clarice, a free woman of color mistress to Lucien, a wealthy French Creole, obsesses and schemes to have Lucien bound to her alone, in a life away from repressive laws and intruding paramours. As the Quadroon Ball approaches, she sees her life spinning out of control as Lucien’s desires for new love and family intertwine with a growing slave uprising.
