 Whidbey Playhouse will be presenting an online presentation of the two woman show, HAVING OUR SAY:  The Delany Sisters’ First 100 Years, on Friday and Saturday, February 19 and 20.

Warm, feisty, witty, and wise, the Delany sisters—103-year-old Sadie and 101-year-old Bessie—walk us through the last century through the lens of two Black women. Their stories present what is at once a vital historical record while also an immensely timely work that reflects social issues at the forefront of the national consciousness.

Tickets are $10 and are available purchase now at www.ShowTix4u.com.   Simply enter “Whidbey Playhouse” in the “Find an Organization” search box at the top of the page. Your ticket allows you to watch the performance any time February 19th or 20th .
