WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Playwright provocateur Thomas Bradshaw ignites the stage yet again in one of his signature inflammatory satires. Jose Zayas directs Southern Promises, an explosive new creation that is not for the faint of heart. When the master of the plantation dies, he wills his slaves to be freed, but his wife doesn't think that good property should be squandered. Pandemonium ensues. The play pulls from the true stories of slave narratives from The Great Escapes including that of Henry Box Brown, a 19th century Virginia slave who escaped to freedom by arranging to have himself mailed to Philadelphia abolitionists in a dry goods container. Southern Promises provides a unique portrait of the old south.
