Nat Turner in Jerusalem

By Nathan Alan Davis
Directed by Merlaine Angwall

October 3-5, 7:30 p.m.
October 6, 2 p.m.

In August 1831, Nat Turner led a slave uprising that shook the conscience of the nation. His attorney, Thomas R. Gray, recorded Turner’s startling account of his prophecy and the insurrection. Nathan Alan Davis’s play imagines Turner’s final night in a Jerusalem jail cell, as he is revisited by Gray and they reckon with what has passed, and what the dawn will bring. Woven with vivid imagery and indelible lyricism, Nat Turner in Jerusalem examines the power of an individual’s resolute convictions and their seismic reverberations through time.
