Audiences have been deeply moved by our newest historical one-act play, I Am This Place, which will wrap up this weekend at Old South Meeting House in downtown Boston. Don’t miss this powerful exploration of a legacy of resistance, survival, loss, and remembrance which may have influenced Crispus Attucks, the African and Indigenous man who was the first to fall during the Boston Massacre.
Two actors, Maria Hendricks and Dominic Carter, take on nine characters in this compelling drama which spans over 100 years. Playwright Miranda ADEkoje imagines what the lives of Crispus Attucks’s parents and ancestors might have been like as Black and Indigenous people living in a time of war and slavery in New England. Pascale Florestal directs this new historical play.
I Am This Place will have performances on Saturday October 23 and Sunday October 24, at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Admission is part of your regular museum admission to Old South Meeting House, 310 Washington Street, or you can get a combo ticket at Old State House, from Revolutionary Spaces.
The good news is that even if you miss it this weekend, I Am This Place is scheduled to return in the summer of 2022 to Old South Meeting House for an 8-week run.
