Steal Away

From John Corry’s NY Times Review, Friday July 24, 1981

‘STEAL AWAY,” the new play by Ramona King at the New Federal Theater, is as warm and friendly as a church supper. In fact, it is about the kind of women who frequently run church suppers: respectable, cheerful and sturdy, and, when they have to be, tough as nails. In ”Steal Away,” they are black women in Chicago in the 1930’s, and what they do, all in a good cause, is to turn to crime. Needless to say, they do not lose a trace of their respectability or cheerfulness when they do.

Presented as part of the 1981-82 Season

Play opened July 24, 1981 at the Henry DeJur Playhouse
