About this show

On his deathbed, a plantation owner vows to set his slaves free, but when his wife rejects the request after his passing, chaos erupts on the plantation. Based on slave narratives, and featuring an all PoC company of actors, Southern Promises is a brilliant examination of the deeply disturbing and utterly corrupting power of American slavery and its lasting grip on our country's hearts and institutions.

Provocateur Thomas Bradshaw returns to the Flea, revisiting his incendiary 2008 play in a new production helmed by artistic director Niegel Smith.
