    Name: East Lynne Theater Company presents POSSESSING HARRIET
    Date: September 29, 2022
    Time: 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    In 1839, in Peterboro, NY, Thomas Leonard, a freed slave, helps Harriet Powell escape from her Southern owner who is visiting the area. While hiding in an attic, a price on her head, waiting to be taken to Canada in the dead of night, Harriet is with abolitionist Gerrit Smith and suffragette Elizabeth Cady (before she married Stanton). Confronted with new and difficult ideas about race and identity, Harriet faces the costs and benefits of freedom. Can Leonard, Smith and Cady convince her to go to Canada – and freedom? Written by Kyle Bass, this compelling play premiered in October 2018, at Syracuse Stage, where Mr. Bass serves as associate artistic director. ELTC is presenting its fifth production and NJ premiere. Mr. Bass received a commission from the Onondaga Historical Association to write POSSESSING HARRIET. It is based on a true story.  The show runs from September 21 – October 15, Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8:00 PM at The Cape May Presbyterian Church, 500 Hughes Street where ELTC is in residence.  For reservation and further information call 609-884-5898 or e-mail eastlynneco@aol.com.
