This drama is about the Tates, a middle class Black family living in the suburbs. Denny owns his own construction business. He has definite ideas about how his children should conduct their lives, particularly his sons. Much of this is a reaction against his own upbringing, as his father was not around very much. We learn about Denny's relationship with his father in a series of scenes between the two men which occur in Denny's mind, since his father is deceased. Eventually, Denny realizes that he must find a happy medium, neither laissez faire nor authoritarian, which will allow his children to go their own ways in life. Between Now and Then was a hit with audiences at Brooklyn's Billie Holiday Theatre.


Between Now and Then opened March 25, 1988 at the Billie Holiday Theatre, Brooklyn's Professional Resident Black Theatre. Directed by Marjorie Moon.
