AMERICAN KING UMPS
Ethos IFCC
Portland, OR
Share this event:


A new play by Don Wilson Glenn, directed by Jaye Austin Williams
presented by Damaris Webb in association with Passin' Art
Funded in part by The Regional Arts & Culture Council, part of The Fertile Ground Festival

Set during the Civil War on the King Cotton Plantation in West Texas, the story of American King Umps begins as the Master of the Plantation, fearing the oncoming of the Union Army, sells his large holding of slaves and and sets fire to the cotton fields. In the Master's absence the slaves are left both to govern themselves, and define their own identities. King Umps is high comedy from beginning to end, a parody of Gone With the Wind and Comedy of Errors meets Roots.

Incorporating the playwright's Great-Great-Grandfather's stories of slavery with mistaken identities, vaudeville and farce, this celebration of Juneteenth allows us, through humor, a deeper journey into the tragedy of slavery and a chance to reflect on how this chapter of the American Experience continues to impact us today.
