Flyin’ West

PERFORMANCE

By Pearl Cleage | Directed by Mical Whitaker

Set in 1898 outside the all-black town of Nicodemus, Kan., Flyin’ West examines the lives, memories and hopes of four women – two former slaves and two free women – seeking a better life. But even in the free state of Kansas – and even away from the uncertainties of the post-Civil War South – the women find that their new surroundings are not free of danger and unexpected twists. Atlanta playwright Pearl Cleage shaped her fictional drama around the factual ramifications of the Homestead Act, the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
