Mariah Brown play to be presented at Woman's Club

Lynn Terez Davis-Nixon
as Mariah Brown
The Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove is presenting a special one-night performance of Mariah Brown - a solo drama based on the life of the early African Bahamian pioneer. This is on Saturday, February 25. 

Written by local playwright Sandra Riley, a tradition of theatre and celebration continues at the historical Woman’s Club, reminding us of the deep roots from which our community has grown. Mariah Brown moved to Coconut Grove in about 1886 to work for Charles and Isabella Peacock at the Peacock Inn. Her Bahamian friends soon followed and the Peacock Inn became the hub of a flourishing settlement. The Inn was across the street from where the Woman's Club stands, in Peacock Park, behind the Glass House.

A reception will follow, allowing a unique opportunity to meet Bahamian actress Lynn Terez Davis-Nixon, Miami playwright Sandra Riley, other local historians as well as to enjoy fellowship among members of the Coconut Grove and West Village communities and celebrate the Club’s 126th anniversary. 

Ticket prices are $30 for General Admission and $50 for Preferred Seating and may be purchased here.

The club is located at 2985 South Bayshore Drive.  For more information, call 305 216-0626.  
For the past 126 years, the Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove (formerly the Housekeepers’ Club) has dedicated its efforts to the well being of the community.  From its earliest days, the Club has presented concerts and plays to raise money for community projects. Playwright historian Sandra Riley has been an active member of the Club since 2003, serving on its Archives Team.
