A pioneer woman and her daughters record the family's hardships and joys in the exquisite quilts they make by hand, each quilt "block" commemorating an event in their lives: girlhood, marriage, childbirth, spinsterhood, twisters, fire, illness, and death. But, with this, there is also love, warmth, rich and lively humor, and the moving spectacle of simple human dignity and steadfastness in the face of adversity.
Quilters was nominated for six Tony Awards, including Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Musical.
Daleko recommends this show for ages 13 and up.
