Friday, April 26, 2019

7:30 PM

The O'Shaughnessy

In this genre-defying work featuring a powerhouse ensemble of 20 singers and musicians, Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower harnesses two centuries of Black music to give musical life to Butler’s acclaimed science fiction novel of the same name.

Written by Toshi Reagon, who Vibe Magazine called “one helluva rock’n’roller-coaster ride,” in collaboration with Bernice Johnson Reagon, the iconic singer, scholar and activist, Parable of the Sower becomes a mesmerizing theatrical work of rare power and beauty that reveals deep insights on gender, race and the future of human civilization.

Tickets are $5 for students, faculty, and staff. St. Kate's ID required.
