‘The Meetin’’ (pronounced (mee-ugn) is based on a Langston Hughes short story entitled ‘Mother and Child’
Time: Late 50’s-early 60’s Place: A small town in southern Ohio
Setting: Church parsonage of the Salvation Rock Baptist Church.
The pastors’ wife, Sister Lottie Mumford, is hosting the monthly meeting of the Missionary Society as a way of showing appreciation for the success of the last months’ community meal. However, the conversation quickly turns to an event in their community....the birth of a baby born of a Negro man and a white woman.
Even though the catalyst for the conversation is the newly born baby, the ladies start to reveal pieces of themselves when the conversations turn to the topics of relationships, family, community, love, racism, loneliness, faith, and in short,...LIFE!
Through these revelations, the character, personality, and heart of these eight women come to life.
