Event description

Description

Benefit performace to support Rooted's mission and overall work. TICKETS: $20 @venue.

About the Play: "Jefferson, an innocent young man, is condemned to death in backwoods Louisiana in 1948. At the trial his lawyer, trying to save his life, called him no more a human being than a hog. In prison, he acts like one, insisting that he will be dragged like that hog to his death in the electric chair. His godmother asks a schoolteacher to teach him to die like a man. The teacher, Grant Wiggins, struggling to quit his poor parish school and leave the South, faces both Jefferson and himself as execution day arrives." A Lesson Before Dying is an inspiring and thought provoking production, which Rooted hopes can facilitate transformative dialogue among the community.

RUNNING TIME: 2 hours with one intermission; each performance will be followed by a brief Q&A with the cast and creative minds behind the show.

DOORS OPEN @230pm, show will begin promptly at 3pm.
