Just as the Lunts collaborated with playwrights, actors, and directors in developing new work, Ten Chimneys Foundation continues the tradition as we welcome Art Manke, playwright, and director, and the cast of Pearl's in the House, for a play reading at Ten Chimneys. Pearl's in the House is a musical play workshopped at Ten Chimneys, and features actors Kim Staunton and Malkia Stampley.

A performer, writer, and special delegate to the United Nations, Pearl Bailey was a trailblazer for African-American women. Yet a talk-show host in 1987 questioned many of her motives; so Bailey responded the only way she knew how—through her music.
