About Southern Promises

Provocateur Thomas Bradshaw revisits his incendiary 2008 play Southern Promises in a new production helmed by The Flea’s Artistic Director, Niegel Smith. On his deathbed, a plantation owner vows to set his slaves free, but his wife rejects the request and chaos erupts on the plantation. Based on slave narratives and featuring an all PoC company of actors, Southern Promises is a brilliant examination of the deeply disturbing and utterly corrupting power of American slavery and its lasting grip on our country’s hearts and institutions. The Flea ends its Color Brave Season bringing this haunting reality onto the stage of The Sam.

"Slowly, almost single-handedly, a black playwright named Thomas Bradshaw has been taking on the idea of race in the theatre. At the same time, he has sliced open the pretensions of the white avant-garde with a wittily glistening axe.” The New York Times said the play is "likely to leave you speechless.”
