During a weekend train trip with her wine and book club, Marie accidentally time travels to the 1940s, where she stays in a boarding house mentioned in her grandmother’s copy of “The Negro Motorist’s Green Book.” Not only has she traveled to Jim Crow Missouri, but she also finds herself staying in a boarding house that is actually a bordello, and where one of the working girls might be someone she knows.

The West Coast Premiere of The Green Book Wine Club Train Trip by Michelle Tyrene Johnson, directed by Jazmine Nichelle opens at Loft Ensemble in North Hollywood this week. The cast features Dominique Howard, Princess Ja’Net, Brieyonna Monét, Jazmine Nichelle, Elena Nicholson, and Tasia Williams.
