In Splendid Error
By William B. Branch
Directed by Carol Velasques Richardson
February 1-17, 2019
The historical drama In Splendid Error examines the friendship between the statesman Frederick Douglass and noted abolitionist John Brown, as Brown contemplates his now infamous raid on Harper’s Ferry. An intimate portrait of men at the crossroads of history, this play delves into the small decisions that sometimes change the world.

There is a $5 “sneak preview” performance on Thursday, January 31.
