The Broad Stage Presents Staged Reading of ‘The Slave Narratives’ (Free Event)


*We know that America was host to one of the most horrendous acts towards humanity in the history of the world in the form of slavery. And we have seen a multitude of theatrical accounts of what went down during that time. But do we really know what was on the minds of our brothers and sisters who lived the event. The men, women, and their children who were in the very grasp of slavery’s nasty hand?

Bonnie Franklin’s Classic & Contemporary American Plays returns with this season’s annual invited dress rehearsal/staged reading of ‘The Slave Narratives.’

“The Slave Narratives: A Mighty, Mighty People” are an accumulation of more than 1,000 personal accounts, and is woven as an important part of the American story with remarkable grace, the power of unvarnished truth, and the uncommon poetry of common folk.

The reading is directed by actresses Hattie Winston and Jenny Sullivan. Harold Wheeler serves as musical consultant.

The FREE event takes place at The Broad Stage (Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center) on Monday, October 24 at 7:30pm.

The address to the venue is 1310 11th St., Santa Monica, CA 90401.

Though the event is free, you must secure your seats and your *tickets here or call 310-434-3200 M-F 12:00PM – 6:00 PM.

All tickets will include a non-refundable, $2 processing fee.
