I’m Back Now

Inspired by Cleveland’s past, present, and future, I’m Back Now presents "a poignant family drama that transcends time and space," as it's put in a press release about the play. At 19, Sara travels to Cleveland to meet her birth mother Elle. As she strives to reconcile the legacy she thought she knew with her actual origins, Sara discovers that she is a descendant of Sara Lucy Bagby, the last woman ever prosecuted under the Fugitive Slave Act. Moving through time from the 1860s to today, the play weaves together three generations of one Black family. Tonight's performance takes place at 7:30 at the Allen Theatre, where performances continue through Feb. 26.
