Playwright Margaret Baldwin finds a local home for the World Premiere of Night Blooms at Horizon Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia. On a historic night in 1965, two Selma, Alabama families deal with conflicts and find their differences are not not necessarily black and white.
Inspired by Baldwin's own family history during this historic period in Selma, she began development with a question: "How did people deal with generational conflicts within their own families at a time when massive change and social tensions are suddenly knocking on their front door?" Baldwin answers this by focusing the play on an "everyday family redefining their relationships on a night of historic change".
"The more you dig into it, the more you see the complexities of the individuals and their relationships with each other."
Inspired by Baldwin's own family history during this historic period of change in Selma, the play focuses on the way the everyday life of a family is influenced as dynamic social changes occur in the world around them.
