Let Them Be Heard: An original adaptation of the Works Progress Administration’s Slave Narrative Project. Edited and adapted by G. Todd Buker of Bare Theatre. Directed by Jeri Lynn Schulke. The program features excerpts from The Slave Narrative Project in the late 1930′s, and will take place in a slave quarters cabin and hand-built barn at Historic Stagville plantation in Durham. The collection of interviews, known as the Slave Narrative Project, contained 176 interviews with men and women who had been enslaved in North Carolina. A handful of these have been selected and are presented almost in their entirety in Let Them Be Heard.
This show contains language and themes of a very sensitive nature and may be found offensive by some people. However, the material will be handled with utmost respect for the men and women who originally told these stories.
General Public $10; Friends of the ArtsCenter $8
