The Conviction of Lady Lorraine

A homeless woman’s 20-year quest to right a social wrong is the focus of The Conviction of Lady Lorraine, an original one-woman teleplay that is being streamed online by Farmers’ Alley Theatre.

Dwandra Nickole Lampkin, an associate theater professor at Western Michigan University and a frequent performer in Farmers Alley Theatre’s productions, wrote and performs in this drama about a writer who has a powerful meeting with a homeless woman named Lady Lorraine near the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated.

The show, which was professionally filmed in October by Chicago-based film company Waltzing Mechanics, is available through Nov. 8 on the Broadway On Demand platform. BOD is accessible through
Apple TV, Roku, Amazon and personal computers and devices.

Tickets are $19.95 and are available on the Farmers Alley website, farmersalleytheatre.com
