The Spirit of Harriet Tubman

March 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The Spirit of Harriet Tubman
Sunday, March 10, 2024 at 2:00 PM and 7:00 PM
Tickets: $32 Standard; $30 for Seniors & Students 

On a barren stage with only a trunk of costumes, Leslie McCurdy thrills her audience with her passionate one-woman portrayal of Harriet Tubman.

There are many plays about Harriet Tubman, but none share her entire life story like a visit with The Spirit of Harriet Tubman. Leslie McCurdy invokes the ‘spirit’ of Harriet Tubman as she portrays the life of the famous Underground Railroad conductor, recreating stories familiar and some rarely told, using words said to have been Harriet Tubman’s own. Through it all we learn of the faith and conviction that drove Harriet Tubman to follow her dreams; the spirit of the past connecting with the present, inspiring her charges to have the courage to do the same in envisioning their future. For 20 Years Leslie has captivated audiences across Canada, The United States and has even played in London England! The Spirit of Harriet Tubman was presented at the 2011 National Black Theatre Festival in Winston-Salem North Carolina, 2012 DC Black Theatre Festival Living Legacy Series, Washington DC, Paul Robeson Art Is A Weapon Solo Play Festival, London England in 2013 and various festivals, Performing Arts Centres, schools and other venues with tens of thousands of audience members being thrilled with Leslie McCurdy’s performance.
