Production Description

Casting "Dessa Rose," by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. Project description: "In the antebellum deep South, the paths of two extraordinary women cross: Dessa, a fugitive slave, condemned to die for her role in a slave uprising; and Rufel, a white slave owner. Dessa Rose is the story of Dessa and Rufel as they cautiously overcome their own prejudices about one another. The growing bond between them forces Rufel to confront her deepest feelings about slavery, while Dessa must decide whether to trust a white woman, with her own life and freedom in the balance."
