"Dust of Egypt" - Sojourner Truth Drama - Staged Readings @ The Sheen Center in NYC
What will a mother do to save her child? Dust of Egypt, a new play by Karin Abarbanel, dramatizes the true, little-known story of the inspiring Black activist Sojourner Truth's heroic and historic fight to rescue her 5-year-old son Peter after he is sold and illegally taken from New York State down South.
From September 18 through October 9, 2023, the Sheen Center is proud to present a staged reading series of Dust of Egypt's award-winning showcase production with its original cast. Directed by Rhonda "Passion" Hansome, the play debuted at the New York Theater Festival's 2022 Winterfest, where it enjoyed a three-day, sold-out run. It won the Festival's Best Actress Award for Desi Waters' stirring portrayal of Sojourner, as well as nominations for Best Production and Best Director. The Festival's show was mounted by Domani Productions.
