      EVENT DETAILS
      Hambone

      Imagine a kingdom located in CVille, uncorrupted by the wyte gaze. Imagine if Vinegar Hill, Gospel Hill, Star Hill had survived and thrived. If traditions from West Africa, South America and everywhere else we were stolen from created a community that resisted an Anglo sensibility, what would that look like? Sound like? Feel like? This is the story of a Prince, dealing with the loss of a father and a message from his ancestor. A mother grieving a husband while trying to protect her kingdom and her son. A brother consumed with a jealousy so great it forces him to do the unthinkable. The ultimate Black family drama. The Jefferson School African American Heritage Center and the Charlottesville Players Guild bring you....Hambone. Directed by Shelby Marie Edwards Adaptation by Leslie M. Scott-Jones Produced by Mitsuko Nazeer The prodigal son returns.
