Adrain Washington has been cast in Thomas Bradshaw's Southern Promises. Southern Promises, officially opens March 24th at the Flea Theater. Previews begin March 11th.
"Provocateur Thomas Bradshaw revisits his incendiary 2008 play Southern Promises in a new production helmed by The Flea’s Artistic Director, Niegel Smith. On his deathbed, a plantation owner vows to set his slaves free, but when his wife rejects the request chaos erupts on the plantation. Based on slave narratives and featuring an all PoC company of actors, Southern Promises is a brilliant examination of the deeply disturbing and utterly corrupting power of American slavery and its lasting grip on our country’s hearts and institutions. The Flea ends its Color Brave Season bringing this haunting reality onto the stage of The Sam." -The Flea Theater
