New York City
The Civil War begins and American society is forever changed. Seeds of hope are taking hold in the hearts of a boy and a girl determined to be more than just friends, and a household built on unwavering tradition is caught in the maelstrom. Might the stars align for the birth of a new equality, and for two people fighting for their future together? This World Premiere guest production at the Odyssey Theatre is based on the book by an acclaimed writer who is often heralded for capturing the essence of racial equality issues in historical fiction. This total theatre experience communicates throughout the narrative with instruments, singing, and choreography, the sweeping events that formed our country during the Civil War, along with intimate details of a poignant love story.
