Shoebox Picnic Road Side: Route One

In 1955, a Black family travels by caravan on Route One from Harlem to visit their matriarch in Littleton, North Carolina. Knowing they were unlikely to be served by eateries along the way, the family prepared a feast placed in shoeboxes lined with tin foil. They’ve pulled over to picnic on the road’s shoulder. This is your invitation to join them, hear the stories of the food in their picnic, and enjoy some classic Southern cuisine. You’ll immerse yourself in their journey and picnic with them from your own shoebox.

NOTES: Tickets include shoebox picnic lunch. Showtimes are 1 p.m. (matinees) and 5 p.m. (evenings). Seating is General Admission. Latecomers will not be seated.

45 Minutes | No Intermission | Recommended Ages 9+
