This unique, award-winning, crowd pleasing theatrical production delves so deeply into the private and public life of Harriet Tubman that audiences believe and behave as though they are experiencing everything with her. Harriet Tubman’s non-stop high energy portrayals of 31 riveting characters living through humorous and wrenching moments begins in a contemporary restaurant and ends nine decades later as she passes into her afterlife. From childhood innocence to teenage rebel, romantic hopeful to heartbroken pragmatist, she evolves into famed Underground Railroad conductor, spiritual icon, revolutionary, and sage. Karen Jones Meadows’ HARRIET’S RETURN: Based upon the Legendary Life of Harriet Tubman brings into full light why Mother Tubman still influences the consciousness and actions of people throughout the world.
