The acting was excellent. The set was cleverly executed. I would have liked a fuller explanation of why Harriet went with Sam.

Writing, acting, staging..... all superb. This was my niece's first real theatre experience (other than broadway extravaganzas and high school plays). There couldn't have been a better introduction to hook her into the wonder of live theatre.

We thought this was a wonderful theatre piece. Good acting, great content/history, interesting staging and well-directed. I highly recommend it if you want to learn another slice of history about slavery in America.

By Lydia R. Diamond

Directed by Megan Sandberg-Zakian

Presented by Underground Railway Theater

A collaboration between Underground Railway Theater and The Providence Black Repertory Company, this East Coast Premiere by Lydia R. Diamond brings Harriet Jacobs’ astonishing true story, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, to the stage. This “immensely sophisticated” play about human oppression, and how certain people rise above it, allows Jacobs to reach out to us from her own era and compel us to look at our history as if for the first time in her unsparing yet beautifully poetic coming-of-age story.
