Steal Away Home
by Bastrop Opera House

Feb. 08 - Feb. 17, 2019

In this moving drama of escape from slavery and flight to freedom, two young slave boys escape from a South Carolina plantation. With the help of many good people, both black and white, they make their way north to join their freed father in Pennsylvania. Their many adventures, dangers, hidings, disguises, narrow escapes, comic exploits and heart-rending experiences are bridged with simple spirituals sung by a choir. New levels of perception arise of the people who lived in those anguished times … and indeed to those who live in ours. 

Directed by Dock Jackson
