From C.G. Gardiner, writer of “Melting Pot Blues” and “A Matter Of Perspective”, comes “A Woman’s Lot”, a new play that examines some of society’s most pressing issues through the lives and interactions of richly drawn characters.

In Gardiner’s latest work, readers will meet a group of seemingly different women who belong to three generations of the Pinder family. When Vanessa Musgrove, the youngest of them, announces that she intends to leave her husband and children, old tensions and hurts are unearthed. Inez, the matriarch of the family is adamantly opposed to Vanessa’s plans. Her mother, Delores, and older sister, Maria, share Inez’s sentiments. As the women grapple with issues of marriage, children, relationships and responsibilities, they find themselves confronting their own history as a family.

Insightful and contemplative, “A Woman’s Lot” is a modern exploration of marriage, motherhood and the underlying issue of race in America. With undeniable clarity and inspired eloquence, Gardiner has crafted a universal story of mothers and daughters and of a family at the brink of crisis.
