Musco, Penny STEAL AWAY: THE STORY OF A HOMESTEADER AND AN EXODUSTER History,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
STEAL AWAY is my one-woman show about a little-known piece of American history, which I originally wrote and performed as Artist-in-Residence of the National Park Service. Set in 1880, STEAL AWAY is told from the perspective of Priscilla, a white woman who leaves the East to homestead in the Plains with her husband and children. She crosses paths with Abigail and her family, former slaves who fled the South after Reconstruction ended. The narrative weaves together historical accounts of those who sought free land through The Homestead Act, and the significant but nearly forgotten movement of 20,000-40,000 blacks who headed north when the last federal troops were removed from the South. These African Americans called themselves Exodusters, likening their flight to the Biblical exodus of Moses and the Israelites out of Egypt. The show's title comes from the Negro spiritual of the same name. I’m a freelance writer whose work has appeared in a variety of national publications. I also have a B.A. in Theatre. I’ve performed STEAL AWAY at many locations since 2009. While the program is appropriate any time of the year, it’s an especially good fit for Black or Women’s History Month, in February and March, respectively.
