Infamous Mothers

Presented by Strollers Theatre

Based on the book Infamous Mothers by Sagashus T. Levingston
Adapted for the stage by Coleman
Directed by Marie Justice

Based on the book Infamous Mothers by Madison’s Sagashus T. Levingston, this play brings to life true stories of incredibly strong women who “went through the belly of hell and brought something good back.” This beautifully told piece weaves powerful theatre by interposing Levingston’s own remarkable story with the stories of six real-life women from her book and four fictional women who represent the struggles and triumphs of all marginalized women.

“I think it’s going to reach people on another level,” Justice says. “More than just reading the book you can now see it in action and these characters can be brought to life. These women’s stories are so absolutely intense. Sagashus’s story is so intense. It will be incredible to have that played out on stage.
