East Lynne Theater Company presents POSSESSING HARRIET     Bookmark and Share
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 is based on a true story. It premiered at Syracuse Stage in 2018, and this marks it's NJ Premiere.
