Across the Lines – a new play with music
July 20, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:30pm, repeating until July 22, 2017
Across the Lines – a new play with music is based on a true story drawn from the memoir and letters of Captain Robert A. Ragan. The piece follows his Civil War journey as he navigates from the South to where his heart lies in the North. He also navigates the changing allegiances of his family and friends in East Tennessee. The divisions in his life and in the country run deep. Who can he trust? Where can he hide? If anyone wins, what have we all lost along the way?
Ragan’s letters home come alive as he shares the terror, and at times the humor, of his race to the blue hills of Kentucky. The people he meets, and ultimately guides, help paint a picture of a national conflict in a poignant and personal way. Throughout the piece, The Soloist comments on the story through an emotional and often playful score. It’s a story that spans a lifetime that can pass in the blink of an eye. R.A. Ragan must cross the lines from South to North, from friend to foe, and from life to death.
Performances will be July 20 (7:30 pm), July 21 (7:30 pm), and July 22 (2:00 pm, 7:30 pm). Don’t miss this play!
