In 1897 The City of New Orleans decreed a Red Light District, 10 Blocks of... Sin. In the 20 years that it existed, Jazz was born there and Ragtime was born there, and there was a woman they called The Countess of Storyville. The return of Countess Willie Dupree to New Orleans 30 years after her birth in prison triggers a saga in which the only certainty is that family ties can kill. The readings will feature Nikki Renee Daniels, Paul Schoeffler, Jamie Laverdiere & Kecia Lewis.
