The Frederick Douglass Project by Solas Nua opens May 10 – May 24 (10 shows) — A site-specific play staged on a wharf in DC’s Southeast Waterfront

 

DESCRIPTION

For the first time in DC history, Solas Nua will bring a theatre production to The Yards Marina. Situated on the Anacostia River, this site-specific play is just a stone’s throw away from Douglass’ historic home at Cedar Hill.

Staged on a pier at the Marina, this world premiere musical was commissioned by Solas Nua to commemorate Frederick Douglass’ 1845 voyage to Ireland and the bicentennial of his birth. The production will feature live music, hip hop, and dancing in an innovative blend of African American and Irish culture.

The Frederick Douglass Project consists of two short plays. An Eloquent Fugitive Slave Flees to Ireland by African-American writer and local theatre star Psalmayene 24, and Wild Notes by award-winning Irish playwright Deirdre Kinahan, giving audiences a dual perspective on Douglass’ experience in Ireland.

This production is proud to be supported by The Irish Embassy, The DC Commission for Arts & Humanities, and the Frederick Douglass Family Foundation.
