Saturday September 25 – 11 am to 2 pm
In the wake of Virginia’s declaring independence, a group of house slaves abandoned by the British royal governor are brought together just minutes before being auctioned by the patriot government. Helpless to influence their fates, they share their hopes and express their fears. Old wounds and new terrors surface as the time approaches when they must confront the shrouded future.
“What Holds the Future?” will be presented on Saturday, September 25, at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., on the Governor’s Palace grounds. Limited seating, with reservations required.
