The Spirit of Harriet Tubman

Special Matinee Performance:

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”.

Each performance is followed by a Q&A discussion, wherein which Leslie expounds upon some of the themes of the play and brings them into contemporary relevancy. Her experience as a Canadian descendent of the Underground Railroad, growing up in a border city between two cultures, gives her a unique perspective on the some of the history and lessons of today.
