On a plantation during the Civil War, a mystical tree stretches toward heaven. It protects James, an enslaved youth, while he reads newspapers about the imminent possibility of freedom, as the battle rages on. When a brooding stranger arrives, James and his makeshift family take the man in. Soon, an unexpected bond leads to a striking romance, and everyone is in uncharted territory. But is love powerful enough to set your true self free? This lyrical and lushly realized play is part of poet, filmmaker, and playwright Donja R. Love’s exploration of queer love at pivotal moments in Black history. Directing is Saheem Ali (Kill Move Paradise).
