Know Before You Go

Originally produced off-Broadway in 1955, a Broadway transfer of the play was announced in 1957, but the production never happened. Alice Childress was a founding member of the American Negro Theatre and the first African-American woman to be produced professionally in New York with her work Gold Through The Trees in 1952.
