About Joe Turner's Come and Gone

It is August 1911 as the Great Migration brings a revolving band of strangers to the door of Seth and Bertha Holly’s Pittsburgh boarding house. Lost souls migrating to the industrial North in search of work, a new life, somewhere to belong. With so many forces at work—mystical, emotional, financial—and the looming fear that Joe Turner will spirit them away back to the oppressive South—this unlikely family of strangers must forge new identities together or alone in this extraordinary drama.
