First produced by the Negro Ensemble Company in 1969, this classic masterpiece by Academy Award nominee Lonne Elder III gives us the portrait of a Harlem family that dreams of a better life, but pursues it in tragic ways. Ceremonies opened the door for new generation of African American playwrights, August Wilson among them. NBC-TV called Elder’s dramatization of rituals "exciting drama, filled with meaningful insight and original comedy."
In this landmark tragedy of 1969, a struggling black family in Harlem is rudely awakened to the cost of their materialistic aspirations and value system. Fed up with laboring to support her father and two grown brothers, Adele shames them into action - stealing from neighborhood shops and bootlegging homemade hooch out of the father's barbershop. L.A. Theatre Works' audio production is not altogether successful. The stage business is gracelessly translated to sound, at times the cast plays too broadly for the intimacy of audio drama, and the script itself creaks now and then with conceits that the African-American theater has since outgrown. Even so, the cast's commitment and fervor seduce the listener and shrink the faults to flyspecks.

Gripping and tragic
Really enjoyed listening to this production would like to hear more like it - well done!!!!
Wow! Great Story Great Acting
This was a great ensemble cast of Actors with commanding style, great skills and good timing. I felt like I was in the theater watching the show on stage. Not listening to a story but watching a great performance on Broadway. The storyline was simple yet captivating. Bravo!
