Titubarecounts the real-life story of a 17th century slave who was among the first accused of witchcraft during the Salem witch trials. Awarded "Most Thought-Provoking" at the Carifiesta festival, Tituba was recently filmed by PBS for its documentary The Spark of the Salem WitchHunts. Nat explores the life and untimely death of Nathaniel "Nat" Turner, a 19th century Virginian slave who led a bloody slave rebellion that resulted in countless deaths, including, ultimately, his own.
Both these shows are dramatic and intense. These pieces have evoked emotions. Nat has been sold out to standing room only audiences in San Diego, New York and the Carribean.
