Natchez, Mississippi, 1955. A warm southern breeze hums. The neon jukebox glows expectantly. Low voices murmur as the Blues ﬁll the air, beckoning to “follow me, follow me...to a place where dreams set sail.” Drift into the home of Ms. Nellie Jackson, a segregated whorehouse where forgotten women seek refuge from the vicious realities of Jim Crow. When a longtime friend gets Nellie to reluctantly house a Northern voting rights worker hiding from a lynch mob, Nellie is forced to choose between protecting their lives or their dreams. Women and men, young and old, risk everything to inspire revolutionary change in a place determined to stay the same. Written by the award winning playwright, Dominique Morisseau, Follow Me To Nellie’s follows eight characters as they embark upon their individual journeys to personal freedom. Incorporating live Blues music and the poetic staging of Assistant Professor Justin Emeka, this regional premiere is both a singular and timeless example of the joy and pain caused by those that love us the most.
