Events This Weekend



Reel Life with iREP Presents “Pennies for the Boatman”
Set in North St. Louis during the summer of 1958, “Pennies for the Boatman” offers a dual profile of Helen, a stolid African-American seamstress, and Camilla, the tempestuous prodigal sister who roars back into town like a force of nature. The storm stirred up by Camila’s unexpected arrival unearths long-buried family secrets, leaving behind both a trail of calamities and a glimmer of unforeseen hope.
