More Info

One of Four Shows in SheATL Summer Theater Festival!

Four Wives and a Will is coming to life as part of the 2021 SheATL Summer Theater Festival with live performances the week of August 23 and the streamed festival after Labor Day weekend! It's one of four shows selected for a live performance with production support from SheATL, a part of SheNYC.

This generous opportunity covers several of the more fixed and bigger budget items of a theatrical production, but not all.

About Four Wives and a Will

Will Crossman’s untimely death brings all his ex-wives together to divide his estate. But none of them are prepared for a secret that could change everything they thought they knew.

Four Wives and a Will is a slice of 227 topped with a scoop of Golden Girls in the 2020s, complete with weed, woke folks and wise cracks and well, a serious message.

Why We Need This Show

This play highlights issues of children, particularly Black children, who grow up fatherless; dishonesty; the healing power of truth; and the importance of mental health and self care in the Black community, particularly with Black women.

More Than a Play

In addition to the play, the event page will provide resources for mental health, self-care, and self-love targeting Black women.

Not only will this build an audience, but it will help the very people this play is meant to serve.
