Synopsis

MISS MINNIE MAE’S GOIN HOME PARTY is the poignant story of Minnie Mae Walker, an African American antiques dealer. After her untimely death, her friends go about the business of planning her funeral, and in the process discover Minnie Mae has been keeping secrets. Set in the 1960s, the story takes place in Miss Minnie Mae’s Antiques and Collectables Shop located on Point Breeze Avenue in South Philadelphia. Served with generous portions of mystery, intrigue and suspense, MISS MINNIE MAE’S GOIN HOME PARTY is unexpectedly amusing and thoroughly entertaining. The unforgettable cast of characters, Brucie, Duke, Reddick, Flossie, and Tiny with their smart and witty dialogue will have audiences laughing long after they’ve left the theater. In the end, MISS MINNIE MAE’S GOIN HOME PARTY gently reminds us of our mortality and perhaps our secret desire that one day family and friends will celebrate our lives by hosting a fabulous Goin Home Party!
