WADESBORO — Actors will explore the slave mentality in post-slavery culture as the curtain rises on “Trapped in a Slave’s House,” an original play premiering Saturday at the Ansonia Theatre.
Shanton Smith wrote the play, which participants describe as “an incredible story” set in the 1970s that shows how the slave mentality originated and how to overcome it.
“‘Trapped in a Slave’s House’” teaches us that we are a product of our environment and whatever we put into our minds will manifest itself in our lives,” states a news release announcing the play.
The curtain’s set to go up at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Ansonia Theatre, 110 S. Rutherford St. in Wadesboro. Doors open at 7.
