ALL ROLES AVAILABLE

• Harriet Tubman – 30ish, black, as we’ve seen her in pictures, in parlor talks she gives to raise

money, she becomes a rustic raconteur, such as Mark Twain studied as a boy. Her language

blooms comedic metaphors and betrays the wit, sometimes sharp, sometimes rueful, of a

brilliant woman exposed to repeated trauma. She triumphs daily because of her mystical faith in

God.

• Nelson Davis (past/present) – mid 20s, black, plays a modern veteran as well as Harriet’s 2nd

husband

• Earl Holloway/Harriet’s Spy 1– 50s, black, plays a modern inmate with Nelson Davis and a spy

for Harriet collecting information behind enemy lines when he is recruited by her.

• Guard Claude/Harriet’s Spy 2 – mid40s, black, plays a modern prison guard and a spy for

Harriet

• Chaplain Ray/Harriet’s Spy 3 – late30s, black, plays the modern prison chaplain and a spy for

Harriet

• Abigail Wright/Neighbor – 30s-40s, white, plays Abigail who opens her house to lead abolitionist

talks to raise funds in support of Harriet’s mission and plays nosy Neighbor who outs the

Kennedy Farmhouse for hosting runaways

• John Brown/Colonel Montgomery – 50s, white, as we’ve seen in pictures

• Narrator – any age, black, The narrator is chorus, the liaison between audience and players,

past and present, with excellent, but never too-fussy, diction, a cross between the narrator of

Shakespeare’s Henry V and Saul Williams, able to speak and sing with ease and intimacy.
