The author is the protagonist in this solo piece which illuminates in shocking fashion the traumas of slavery, particularly for women and children. The stage adaptation culminates in Harriet Jacobs's powerful and moving experiences during the seven years she spent hiding in The Loophole, a crawl space in her grandmother’s attic. Audiences, having absorbed the images without sets or props, only the truth of the author’s evocative words, will emerge with a visceral experience that may become an enduring part of their understanding of the “institution” of slavery. Surrounded by pre and post show discussions, audiences will explore themes including resilience and survival.
