- 24 Wizard of Oz
A powerful drama exploring the life of Sojourner Truth, a woman searching for her identity in a country ripped apart by Civil War. As she walks thousands of miles, physically and emotionally, her evolving faith and progressive ideas send shock waves through the nation that continue to reverberate. Through music, movement, and drumming, her story comes to life -- from her birth as a slave, watching her brothers, sisters, and even her own children sold away; to her meetings with Lincoln and her explosive speeches across the Union; to her final crisis of faith ... her own mortality.
“The play has beautiful intensity and eloquence. We need to learn the story it tells.” – The Cleveland Plain Dealer
