Performance Space 122 will present Thomas Bradshaw's Southern Promises, to be directed by Jose Zayas, September 6-27.

Inspired by the true stories of slave narratives from The Great Escapes, the play concerns a plantation in which a master wills his slaves to be freed upon his death, but his wife doesn't think that good property should be squandered. The cast will include Lia Aprile, Jeff Biehl, Matt Huffman, Sadrina Johnson, Peter Mccabe, Derrick Sanders, Hugh Sinclair, and Erwin Thomas.

The play is presented in conjunction with The Immediate Theatre Company and Queens Theatre in the Park as part of B.O.B., PS 122's Best of Boroughs Program Commission.

Bradshaw's previous plays include Purity, Strom Thurmond Is Not A Racist, Cleansed, and Prophet.
