Theater for the New City presents a period drama about a pair of slaves desperate for freedom interspersed with iconic speeches from the abolitionist movement.
Meet Frederick Douglass as he shares his life's experience as a slave. Hear Abraham Lincoln deliver one of his most eloquent speeches, then bear witness to John Brown's bold and controversial insurrection at Harpers Ferry. At the heart of all this chaos is the Tully plantation. Amidst the threat of the slave masters' impure desires and demands, against the threat of the bondsmen's relentless pursuit, our young heroes discover they share a deep connection, hoping for a brighter future while holding fast to the past.
