Here is a musical delight to capture the whole family.
Quilters tells the story of a family of pioneer women through their working on a series of quilt blocks that reflect their history and experiences on the frontier. They relate their own experiences ranging from the everyday to the dramatic – from cross-country passages to childbirth, to cyclones and prairie fires.
At the core of the story is Sarah, mother of seven daughters; and their stories and experiences bond together in a quilt they stitch as the play progresses.
It is both funny and touching, and a pure patriotic view of women’s roles on the American frontier.
Quilters premiered on Broadway in 1984.
