The Hotel Cerise


Set in Michigan, USA. 2016.

As America's first black president ends his eight years in office - Anita Mountjoy risks losing her family's beloved hotel and cherry orchard, where Martin Luther King rested and Miles Davis played.  Are the family keepers of this proud history, or simply trapped by its ghosts?  Can 'the audacity of hope' survive?

Bonnie Greer's new play is set in and around the Hotel Cerise - a famous retreat for middle class black people during the time of segregation. It's a landmark and symbol - a place where Black America once felt welcome and safe...
