On a plantation in 1828 Louisiana, against the backdrop of a slave insurrection, Manon, a spoiled young beauty, and Sarah, her servant, are locked in a psychological struggle forged by circumstance. Although divided by class and race, they are united in their hatred of Gaudet, Manon's tyrannical husband who has forced Sarah to become his mistress. When a bloody night swings open the gates of their cages, subsequent choices reveal the corrupting nature of ownership. Based on the award-winning novel by Valerie Martin ("Chilling [and] Intriguing" - The New York Times) and directed by Peter Schneider (Dir. Sister Act the Musical, Grand Hotel, Prod. Aida, The Lion King), Property presents theater-goers with a rare and thrilling look into a dark corner of American History and explores what it truly means to be reduced from person to property.
