About the Play
THE FREDERICK DOUGLAS PROJECT by Deirdre Kinahan & Psalmayene 24
MAY 10 - 24 AT THE YARD'S MARINA
For the first time in DC history, Solas Nua will bring a theatre production to The Yard's Marina. Situated on the Anacostia River, this site-specific play will overlook Douglass' historic home at Cedar Hill.
Staged on a pier at the Marina, this play was commissioned by Solas Nua to commemorate Frederick Douglass' 1845 voyage to Ireland and the bicentennial of his birth. The production will feature live music, hip hop, and dancing in an innovative blend of African American and Irish culture.
