The Spirit of Harriet Tubman at North Coast Repertory Theatre
March 6 @ 7:30 pm - March 7 @ 7:30 pm$39
There are many plays about Harriet Tubman, but none share her entire life story like a visit with THE SPIRIT OF HARRIET TUBMAN. Leslie McCurdy invokes the “spirit” of Harriet Tubman as she portrays the life of the famous Underground Railroad conductor, recreating stories familiar and some rarely told, using words said to have been Harriet Tubman’s own. Through it all, we learn of the faith and conviction that drove Harriet Tubman to follow her dreams as the spirit of the past connects with the present, to inspire her charges to have the courage to do the same in envisioning their future. Called “a powerful, must see performance – the whole family can enjoy.”
“Theatre is at its best when performance intersects reality and resonates with those present. The Spirit of Harriet Tubman is a moving experience, valuable for both its history and its call to continue freedom’s journey.”
-DC Theatre Scene, Washington DC
“A wrenching and ultimately inspiring narrative leavened by humour…riveting…the indisputable talents of Leslie (Lorraine) McCurdy have seen to that.
