WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

On a plantation during the Civil War, a mystical tree stretches toward heaven. It protects James, a young slave, while he reads newspapers about the imminent possibility of freedom as the battle rages on. When a brooding stranger arrives, James and his makeshift family take the man in. Soon an unexpected bond leads to a striking romance, and everyone is in uncharted territory. But is love powerful enough to set your true self free? This lyrical and lushly realized play is part of poet, filmmaker, and playwright Donja R. Love's exploration of queer love at pivotal moments in black history. Saheem Ali (Nollywood Dreams) directs.
