Soul Rep is ecstatic to collaborate with Echo Theatre again on the regional premiere production of Tori Sampson’s CADILLAC CREW, deemed by Journal Inquirer as

“Some of the best new theater of the year… Sampson gives us four great characters, three black and one white, all with different points of view on race and gender relations, but all with the same objective, equality for women of color.” 

On the day of a much-anticipated speech by Rosa Parks during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, four activists working in a Virginia civil rights office wonder whether the proclamation of equality amongst mankind includes women. With remarkable insight and unexpected humor, Cadillac Crew reclaims the stories of the forgotten leaders who blazed the trail for desegregation and women’s rights and asks: when will the world be ready to embrace women in all their capacity. Cadillac Crew premiered at Yale Repertory Theater in New Haven, Connecticut on April 26, 2019. The production will run at the Bath House Cultural Center.

Playwright Tori Sampson’s plays include If Pretty Hurts Ugly Must be a Muhfucka (Playwrights Horizons, 2019), This Land Was Made (Vineyard Theatre, UPCOMING 2022), and Cadillac Crew (Yale Repertory Theater, 2019). Her plays have been developed at Great Plains Theatre Conference, Berkeley Repertory Theatre’s The Ground Floor residency program, Victory Garden’s IGNITION Festival of New Plays, Playwrights Foundation and Ubuntu Theater. She is a native of Boston and holds an MFA in Playwriting from Yale.
