A young woman named Toulou arrives in depression-era Memphis with dreams of becoming a blues singer. Almost immediately, she falls in love with a rambling musician named Ace of Spades while her born-again brother, Jib, is hot on her heels. Desperate to claim Ace’s love for herself, Toulou lays a hex on him with the help of a Hoodoo practitioner, setting in motion a devastating chain of events.

Katori Hall’s spellbinding, music-filled tale about the danger of our desires makes its return to Chicago on Raven’s intimate Schwartz Stage.

Please note: This play contains sexual intimacy and violence. For more information, please call our Box Office at (773)-338-2177.
