Friends, I'm appearing a powerful new play called POSSESSING HARRIET at the Franklin Stage Company in Franklin, NY, in the state's beautiful Western Catskills. This is a limited run from July 12-28, Thursday-Sunday only.
By Kyle Bass
Directed by Leslie Noble
With Katya Collazo, Gary-Kayi Fletcher, Erin Christine Walsh & Ezra Barnes
In 1839, Harriet Powell, a young, mixed-race, enslaved woman slips away from a hotel in Syracuse, New York, and escapes, finding temporary safe harbor in the home of impassioned abolitionist Gerrit Smith. With the slave catchers in pursuit, Harriet spends the hours before her nighttime escape to Canada in the company of Smith’s young cousin Elizabeth Cady, an outspoken advocate for women’s equality. As both women confront new and difficult ideas about race, identity, and equality, Harriet is forced to the precipice of a radical reckoning with the heartrending cost of freedom.

POSSESSING HARRIET had its world premiere at Syracuse Stage in October 2018. Originally commissioned by the Onondaga Historical Association, the play has been acclaimed as a “90-Minute Stunner” (|Post-Standard), “thought-provoking and emotional" (Broadway World) and "riveting” (WWNY TV).
