...And Jesus Moonwalks the Mississippi - Sound Theatre Company
Civil War. Civil Rights.
And a Modern Myth of Transformation.
Inspired by the myth of Demeter and Persephone and set on the banks of the Mississippi during the Civil War, ...AND JESUS MOONWALKS THE MISSISSIPPI combines storytelling, gospel music and wit, following an escaped slave and a Confederate soldier who are both on journeys to find lost loves. This lyrical play is based on award-winning playwright Marcus Gardley's family history, about a man who escaped slavery and traveled the country to search for his family.
