In Harriet Tubman’s Dream by Lisa Giordano, Tubman is portrayed giving one of her storytelling performances in Boston. Harriet Tubman was an African American abolitionist, anti-slavery activist, suffragist and one of the greatest American humanitarians that ever lived. After escaping slavery, into which she was born, she made thirteen missions to personally rescue over seventy slaves with the help of the Underground Railroad, and she helped another 60 slaves plan and carryout their own escapes.

Dinner @ 6pm, Performance @ 8pm

RiverWalk Restaurant
14 Holmes St.
Mystic, CT

Tickets are $50 per person, includes prix fix dinner menu and performance.

The play centers on just two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III. Using the epistolary form sometimes found in novels, they sit side by side at tables and read the notes, letters and cards – in which over nearly 50 years, they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats – that have passed between them throughout their separated lives.

United Baptist Church
119 High Street, Mystic, CT

Tickets are $25, $23 for seniors and students

The play takes place on a front porch in Georgia and opens in the hot stretch of June. Married as slaves and separated on the night of thier marriage, Sarah and Isaiah are reunited after twelve years. They attempt to salvage a past amidst the constant reminders from the dead who are just as real as the living and breathing reminders of Hattie and Vance Williams, who live just down the road. And all of this is done for the sake of possibilities, for the future. At stake is a chance to be whole, to be treated as necessary as the space that one occupies. At stake is the ability to love completely and to have the capacity to be loved.
