Sacred Conversations continue at Dover UCC
Sacred Conversations will continue at Dover Congregational UCC with a presentation of the one-act play, "Bound Together," on Sunday, Oct. 27, at 7:00 p.m. The play is about Frances Ellen Watkins Harper who was born in 1825, a "free woman of color" when others of her race were enslaved. Frances was an extraordinary "person of color" – poet, abolitionist, essayist, public speaker, journalist, suffragist and published novelist.
"Bound Together," written by local playwright, Kelly Boyer Sagert and directed by Dave MacKeigan, explores Harper's life, revealed while she and Hannah, a fictional white nurse with her own history, are caught in a blizzard in Harper's home. Debra Rose stars as Frances and Judy MacKeigan plays the role of Hannah, a poor Southern white woman who has lived a different sort of life.
The performance of "Bound Together" is part of the national conversation about the beginning of slavery in Jamestown 400 years ago. The audience will be invited to engage the actors in a post production conversation.
Dover UCC is located at 2239 Dover Center Road, Westlake. Admission is free and open to the public.
