Nat Turner in Jerusalem

By Nathan Alan Davis

Directed by Merlaine Angwall

In August 1831, Nat Turner led a slave uprising that shook the conscience of the nation. His attorney, Thomas R. Gray, recorded Turnerís startling account of his prophecy and the insurrection. Nathan Alan Davisís play imagines Turnerís final night in a Jerusalem jail cell, as he is revisited by Gray and they reckon with what has passed, and what the dawn will bring. Woven with vivid imagery and indelible lyricism, Nat Turner in Jerusalem examines the power of an individualís resolute convictions and their seismic reverberations through time.
