Durham, NC 27712
FOUR SHOWS ONLY: 7:00p, 7:30p, 8:00p, 8:30p
– ALL SHOWS SOLD OUT!
Bare Theatre presents a new work based on interviews with former enslaved people that were recorded between 1936 and 1938 as part of the Slave Narrative Project.
It is the goal of this project to tell those stories, to remember them and remember those who told them, as well as the countless others whose stories will never be told.
The text will be pulled directly from the slave narratives, in the words of the men and women who told them, without commentary.
The narratives will be presented at Historic Stagville to provide a real context and sense of what life in America under slavery was like just before and during the Civil War.
There will be four separate hour-long tours, at 7:00p, 7:30p, 8:00p & 8:30p – ALL SHOWS SOLD OUT
LATE ADMITTANCE IS NOT POSSIBLE due to the environmental nature of the show.
AUDIENCE MEMBERS WILL STAND AND WALK THROUGHOUT THE PROGRAM, AND WILL BE OUTSIDE FOR PART OF THE SHOW. Audience members should wear comfortable shoes and weather/insect appropriate clothing.
THIS SHOW CONTAINS LANGUAGE AND THEMES OF A VERY SENSITIVE NATURE and may be found offensive by some people. However, the material will be handled with utmost respect for the men and women who originally told these stories.
Actors will be speaking in dialect exactly as it was recorded in the Slave Narrative Project, without changes.
THIS PROGRAM IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR SMALL CHILDREN.
