The Decade Dance
Playwright: Joseph Zettelmaier
Roger Weems, recently returned from Vietnam, meets Nina Reynolds, an African American student activist, during a Kent State rally. A one-night stand becomes a ten-year journey as Rog and Nina navigate a relationship against the backdrop of a turbulent decade. Ten scenes set against various social events of the 70s provide a glimpse into a country trying to find itself, and two people trying to find their place in it.
"As comfy as a pair of worn Hush Puppies."
- Detroit Free Press
“The Decade Dance hustles its way through the 70s in a fast-paced romp that is powerful in its examination of how a relationship changes amid a tumultuous country."
- Encore Michigan
