Legendary Broadway and film actress Ruby Dee returns to her hometown tonight to take part in a staged reading of Saint Lucy's Eyes, a play written by fellow Clevelander Bridgette Wimberly. Set in segregated Memphis on the night before Martin Luther King's assassination in 1968, the drama centers on a 17-year-old girl who pays $50 for an abortion from a woman known only as "Grandma," played by Dee. "She's an extraordinary old woman who has found a real purpose in life," says Dee, who originated the role off-Broadway in 2001.
