The Old Settler

PG/ Drama / Revival 

By John Henry Redwood

Directed by Eileen J. Morris                                                                

In World War II Harlem, two spinsters, Elizabeth and Quilly (or as they were called in those days - an "old settler") take in a young male roomer, Husband who has come from South Carolina to search for his girlfriend, Lou Bessie. There is an ominous cloud of tension that hangs over Elizabeth and Quilly's relationship. This tension is further exacerbated when Elizabeth and Husband take to liking each other. It is this "carrying on" that exposes a thirty-year-old wound which, until now, only had a bandage now the wound can heal for the sisters
