Episode Detail: The Old Settler - PBS Hollywood Presents

Sisters Debbie Allen and Phylicia Rashad star as squabbling sisters in "The Old Settler," John Henry Redwood's searing 1997 stage play set in World War II-era Harlem. "Old settler," a period slang term for a spinster with no prospects, neatly defines prim Elizabeth Barney (Rashad). Money's tight, so she has taken in her hard-nosed, divorced sister Quilly (Allen, who also directed), even though there's bitterness between them. Bumper Robinson, Crystal Fox.
