Set in 1937 on a farm in rural Virginia, “The Last Queen of Canaan” follows the relationship between Cora Skye, an uncompromising African American landowner, and Ginny, her restless granddaughter.

Ginny, however, dreams of a modern city life – a life that feels impossibly out of reach.

Make room in your laminated binder next to "Girl in 14G" and "Alto's Lament", cherubs ("cherubs" in the sense of both the pet name, and the alumni of Northwestern's illustrious summer theater intensive): “The Only [Straight] Boy in the Room” is a sultry slow jam that allows its singer to show off comic timing, lyrical dexterity, and gratuitous belting.
