Focusing on how all oppression is inter-related; this theatrical event will feature published segments of the Ferguson Syllabus, The New Black Fest's, Hands Up: 7 Playwrights and 7 Testaments, Facing Our Truth: Ten Minute Plays on Trayvon, Race and Privilege, along with CSUEB student dramatic/comedic testimonies of survival, perseverance and resilience. There will also be an opportunity for a community response circle which may lead to a spontaneous, unique art piece within each performance.

Riffing off of the Ferguson Syllabus, this new adaptation begins with elements from the 2016-2017 production of CSU Ferguson and subsequent tour versions. We will fold in new testimonies, new songs and new spoken word pieces that speak to old problems and how we as an evolving community are reacting to them to find transformative actions.

Seeking to retrieve his runaway wife and the possessions she has taken with her, Coleman Shedman arrives at the rural meeting house of a southern Pentecostal sect with a lawyer in tow. However, he finds his wife Nancy, is unwilling to forsake the love and protection of her new "husband," the Reverend Obediah Buckhorn and return to the brutal, hard-drinking Coleman. And when the strapping Reverend Buckhorn himself arrives, it is quickly evident that Coleman will not be able to take her back by force. Rich with atmosphere and the feel of southern rural life, the play blends humor and poignancy as it probes into the circumstances and stories of the various cult members--culminating in a gripping snake-handling scene in which the cynical Coleman, to his own amazement, is himself converted to a true believer.
