“The Sty of the Blind Pig” by Phillip Hayes Dean is Banyan Theater’s second play of the season.

Winner of the Drama Desk Award in 1971, the play is set on Chicago’s south side prior to the Civil Rights movement. The story involves a black mother and unmarried 30-something daughter who live together. Weedy, the mother, is an old-fashioned black woman very involved in her religion. The daughter, Alberta, is grappling with sexual frustrations and the life of a straight-laced single lady in a world of couples.
