The Day is Past & Gone: A Trilogy of Slave Life

May 20, 2022 - May 21, 2022

Free – $15.00

Performances at 6:30 PM each evening

Playwright Teresa Harris’s original drama returns to Mr. Jefferson’s south lawn for two performances only—Friday and Saturday, May 20 and 21, 2022. Drawn from real-life experiences of the men and women who were enslaved at Poplar Forest, the trilogy explores the complexity of their lives and their struggles to survive. Join Harris, the cast and Poplar Forest’s archaeology and interpretation staff for a Q&A following the performance. Bring your friends and family, a picnic and a blanket or chairs, and experience a little-known but important part of Poplar Forest’s history brought to life. Tickets are $15 for adults age 18+; $10 for youth ages 6-17 and college students; and free for children under 6. Rain date: Sunday, May 22, 2022.
