Plays in Place will return to live performances next month with Moonlight Abolitionists at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA, September 20-22, 8pm. This concert reading is a swirling conversation between six abolitionists buried at the Cemetery, designed to be performed outdoors, under the full moon. It’s an experience not to be missed.
Tickets have just gone on sale and seating is limited so they will go fast. You can get tickets here. Megan Sandberg-Zakian is directing a cast that includes Steven Barkhimer, Rachel Cognata, Amanda Collins, Alexander Platt, Damon Singletary, and Lewis D. Wheeler.
We’ve had such great experiences at Mount Auburn, so it’s a thrill to return with this play. Being in the Cemetery at night, under the full moon is a unique experience and the play makes the most of the power of the place and the history of these six people who fought so hard for freedom.
