Colored Silk: A Civil War Odyssey Tickets
"Colored Silk" is a one-woman Civil War drama by Tami Tyree based upon the narrative of Elizabeth Keckley (1818-1907) whose extraordinary needlework afforded her a prosperous life. “Lizzie” was a self-emancipated slave and dressmaker for Mary Todd Lincoln. Ms.Tyree’s portrayal restates and imagines Elizabeth’s ‘odyssey’ through the south and midwest. Punctuated by nightmares, obstacles and sacrifices, her ascendance to the Nation’s Capital proves to be both triumphant and tragic. VIP tickets include a drink, signed program, and historical journal by the author.
