Delaney Sisters: Having Our Say
Bessie and Sadie Delaney were born in the late 1890's in North Carolina. A hundred years later, they were living in upstate New York, and a New York Times reporter began a series of interviews with the two extraordinary women, who had each lived through a century of United States history. Their story became an oral history, then a book, and then a play that eventually made it to Broadway. By Ty Chandler
Kansas City, MO – But you don't have to go any further than the Kansas City Public Library to a reading of the play: Having Our Say: The Delaney Sisters First Hundred Years. It will be the fifth performance of the script-in-hand series produced by the Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre. KCUR's Ty Chandler spoke this week to artistic director Karen Paisley, who directed Having Our Say.
Having Our Say will be performed Sunday, March 11 at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library. Admission is free.
