Based on Ann-Marie MacDonald’s best-selling debut novel, our closing installment of Fall On Your Knees takes us to Harlem and the early jazz scene. Love blossoms, seemingly a world away from the constraints of family and social convention.
A play with shocking twists and unforgettable characters, Fall On Your Knees is a journey through love, betrayal, the inescapable bonds of family, and the power of redemption.
By turns heartbreaking and hilarious, Fall On Your Knees reminds us that secrets are potent with the power to break us or bring us closer, the power to hold us back, or set us free.
"Stage adaptation...LIVES UP TO THE HYPE through deft use of music." – Morgan Mullin, The Coast
