About this show

The Humana Festival presents Pure Confidence, by Carlyle Brown. The powerful tale of Simon Cato -- a slave with the imagination to pursue the unfathomable: freedom. Based on historical accounts of African American jockeys, the play examines these early riders -- unusual assets to their masters -- while conveying yet another untold story: a complex view of the essentially capitalistic impulse underlying the "peculiar institution" of slavery.
