The Dublin Main Street Players bring to life Pearl Cleage's testament to Coretta Scott King in this performance of A Song for Coretta.

The play: 

On February 6, 2006, people began lining up at dawn outside of Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church to pay respects to the late Mrs. Coretta Scott King, widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose body lay in state. The crowd wound down the street and around the corner. People stood patiently for hours, waiting to say goodbye. When a cold rain began to fall at sunset, those who had thought to bring umbrellas shared them with those whose resolve was the only thing not dampened by the drizzle. At close to midnight, the crowd had dwindled to a determined few. The five fictional characters in this play are at the end of that long line of mourners.

Tickets are $12, and can be purchased online, at Theatre Dublin's box office Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or at the box office two hours prior to show time.
