Ruth’s family buys their first car—a 1952 mist-green Buick—and sets out from Chicago to her grandmother’s in Alabama. Ruth’s initial excitement is huge as the trip heads into the green of the suburbs and family members share stories. But her feelings change to dismay and confusion when the family is turned away from restrooms and motels as the trip continues. Then, with a newly purchased Green Book in hand, Ruth and her family take control of their outing. Cherise Boothe’s gentle narration takes a backseat to the story’s characters and events. Boothe’s voice is calm, her pacing deliberate, her enunciation distinct—a totally pleasing package. The production concludes with additional information about the Green Book and Jim Crow laws.
