Singin Wid A Sword

In Ma Hand

In Singin Wid A Sword in Ma Han, Topper, an enslaved field hand, tells the story, accompanied by a Griot chorus, of how she and her fiancé Nate, a hired-out carpenter, decide to run to freedom. They convince their family to come along even though they risk almost certain death if captured.

Throughout their journey, Spirituals not only express a longing for spiritual release and freedom, but also provide coded directions and warnings. (read more)


By a wide margin Singin Wid A Sword In Ma Han won the Audience Favorite Award out of 201 shows at the 2009 New York International Fringe Festival
