Freedom Is My Home brings about a new way of looking at the Underground Railroad – from the view of a woman and her personal stories of serving as a conductor. The one-woman play shows the perspective of a woman who did not condone slavery and felt the courage to do something about it, even though danger was evident. The play contains real stories of daring escapes and the friendships born in the course of aiding fugitives, examines alternative methods of communication, and delves into the strength, courage, and determination needed by all participants. This play shares one Quaker woman’s story, what brought her to this place, her emotional encounters with the pursued and the pursuers, and why she continued to ask, “Can we standby and let this happen?”
