At a secret meeting place around a fireside in the woods, six members of a slave community gather to rescue one of its members - a child - from catastrophe through the healing power of storytelling. African and African-American folktales, dance, song and drums representing the sustaining heartbeat of Mother Africa, come together in a joyous celebration of the oral tradition. Seattle favorite Charlayne Woodard, acclaimed for her shows PRETTY FIRE, NEAT, and IN REAL LIFE, returns to us with this redemptive and poignant homage to a people’s ability to heal, support, unite and inspire hope in one other.
“A heart-warming and dynamic theatrical piece about how we are unconditionally responsible for each other."
