Becoming Frederick Douglass, directed by Melania Levitsky and featuring Phil Darius Wallace. Frederick Douglass, an honorable man whose name may be familiar, but whose honorable deeds have been mostly forgotten, was born into slavery on a plantation in Maryland in 1818. He escaped, educated himself, and became a leader in the abolitionist movement, an author, orator, social reformer, feminist, statesman, and advisor to President Lincoln. The story of his life is a call to action in crucial times. At the end of his life, Douglass said that the struggle was not over. The transformation from slave to man that defined his life was not finished. With this production, WTD continues the conversation about what it means to become a fully human being, while also exploring Douglass’ vision of the becoming of America. Performed at Space 360, 360 Warren Street, Hudson. For tickets and information visit www.wtdtheater.org or call 1.800.838.3006.
