Flight $13

Charlayne Woodard

Published by Dramatists Play Service

2 Male 4 Female

In 1858, on a plantation in Georgia, a young mother is suddenly sold, leaving behind her husband and their five-year-old son

Through a magical evening of storytelling, music and dance, the enslaved community comes together, not only to comfort father and son but to heal and strengthen themselves

Flight is an inspirational theatrical experience for the whole family

These empowering stories, based on actual slave narratives, as well as African and African-American folktales, celebrate the African-American oral tradition as it passes from generation to generation

"Woodard's drama is about the toll that slavery took on the human soul of blacks as well as the tools they employed to withstand the pain and triumph over it. Its universal themes and overall message transcend race, ethnicity and class" ~ Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
