A HOME ON THE LAKE
 

APRIL 26th - APRIL 29th

927 Noyes Street Evanston IL

A Home on the Lake is a play about two Evanston families in two eras whose lives are disrupted by matters of property and race. In 1920, as the Great Migration begins to change the demographics of Evanston, two entrepreneurs—one white, one African American—make business deals that will result in the relocation of black residents to what will become, for generations thereafter, the city's "black district." Their business decisions have consequences for their own families, including one that isn't revealed for nearly a century when the current descendants of those two families are faced with the question of who has a right to a home on the lake.
