How do you confront pain? How can a community rally together to support a community member dealing with unimaginable loss? Is it possible to move forward? Weathering, a new play written by Harrison David Rivers and directed by Colette Roberts, seeks to answer these questions. By telling the stories of generations of Black women all confronting loss, Weathering is ultimately a story of deliverance from grief. This play marks Rivers’ first commission of the Penumbra stage. The theater, located in downtown St. Paul, has become recognized in recent years as a touchpoint for racial healing and equity in recent years, sharing stories, poetry, and art through the lens of the Black experience.
