“Bound Together: One Great Bundle of Humanity”
In observance of Juneteenth weekend, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 300 Third Street, Elyria, is hosting this performance by local playwright Kelly Boyer Sagert. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Admission is $5 at the door. The story is a portrayal of Frances Ellen Watkins Harper; poet, abolitionist, essayist, public speaker, journalist, suffragist, and published fiction writer born in the US in 1825, while much of her race was enslaved. The play looks at her life, revealed when she and Hannah, a fictional white nurse with a history of her own, get snowed in. Beautifully portrayed by Debra Rose (Frances) and Judy MacKeigan (Hannah). Directed by Dave MacKeigan.
This thought provoking drama demonstrates the difficulties and the necessity of inter-racial communication in the past, which of course resonates well in the present. The one-act drama is followed by a question and answer session with Ms. Sagert and the actors, helping to further illuminate our continuing racial challenges.
