The Studio@620 presents "Uncle Bends: A Home-Cooked Negro Narrative", written and performed by Bob Devin Jones

Join us as we reawaken the voices of the past and sit down with them for dinner during "Uncle Bends", July 14-17, 2011.  Bring your appetite for powerful storytelling!  Bob prepares a meal for the audience while portraying characters ranging from young to old,man to woman, slave to free man.  "Reflecting on the stereotypes of the American negro, Jones projects individual portraits of lives that were truly beautiful.  He has unearthed deeply personal stories from the American past, dusted them off, polished them, and placed them at the supper table".--Colleen Reilly, Charleston City Paper
