Life doesn’t often play out like it does in the movies, at least not according to 17-year-old Ernestine. During the emergence of the Civil Rights Movement in 1950, the young African-American girl moves with her family from the turbulent South to the unknown borough of Brooklyn. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage's tale follows Ernestine on her journey to self-discovery in a play that is equal parts cultural drama and coming-of-age comedy. Fri-Sat 7:30 p.m.; Sun 2 p.m.
