Join New Venture for its 11th season with this performance of “Plenty of Time.”

In 1968, a spoiled southern debutante and a Black Panther fall in love, though forbidden by class and principle Corey and Christina meet in Oak Bluffs a black section of Martha's Vineyard. Christina is 17 years old and from an upper-class family. Corey is 22 and a member of the Black Panther Party. Despite their obvious differences they are attracted to one another. Once a year for the next 43 years, they return to the small private beach house to meet and bring with them their personal growth and experiences. Their time elapsed relationship reveals how each is affected by the changing world around them.
