NYCCT is proud to present Maya Angelou's I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, a one-woman show that weaves unaltered prose directly from Angelou's groundbreaking and controversial book and introduces a new generation to this American literary icon.

On a rainy day in Stamps, Arkansas, Maya Angelou has returned to the now-abandoned general store where she grew up and came of age. While inside, the room conjures memories, and she reminisces out loud the events and lessons learned on her tumultuous, painful, beautiful, and extraordinary journey into womanhood.

Adapted by award-winning playwright Idris Goodwin and directed by Khalia Davis. Starring Cherrye J. Davis.
