A Rolling World Premiere by Gabrielle Fulton
Directed by Thomas W. Jones II

A Sweeping Journey of Freedom and Romance

When Sal discovers a hypnotic revolutionary hiding in the field, she and her community will never be the same. The passions of this man-on-the-run from John Brown’s Raid thrust Sal into a stormy romance and a desperate journey to save a boy and her own spirit. A sweeping story laced with bluesy tunes, danger and sweet touches of magical realism about finding freedom on your own terms.
