  • Samm-Art Williams’ brilliantly inventive, lyrically expressive play deals joyfully with the coming of age of Cephus Miles, an orphan who leaves his family's farm in North Carolina to seek refuge and prosperity in the North. Three actors portray more than 25 characters over the course of Cephus' epic journey from adolescence to adulthood, as he struggles to stay true to himself amid a rapidly changing and turbulent America. Spanning the 1950s through the Vietnam War and Civil Rights eras, hurdles and setbacks continuously obstruct his road to happiness. But Cephus perseveres and always manages to remain upbeat. In the end, when he finally learns to love himself, Cephus is able to accept the bounty and riches that have been given to him. After all, there’s no place like home. Runs Oct. 19 through Nov. 5, Thursdays, Fridays and, Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m.. International City Theatre in the Long Beach Performing Arts Center, 330 E. Seaside Way, Long Beach, CA 90802. For tickets and info call (562) 436-4610 or go to InternationalCityTheatre.org.
