PRESS RELEASE: Brown Theatre presents Assistant Professor Marcus Gardley’s "The Road Weeps, The Well Runs Dry"

HORSE POWER: … Ain’t no such thing as a bad history. There’s only a bad way to tell it. You need to know where your fathers came from so you don’t go down the same roads they got lost on. You need to know what’s in your blood, Wonderful.
