Harriet Beecher Stowe's dramatic but controversial anti-slavery novel is seen from an African-American perspective in playwright Robert Alexander's radical new adaptation as presented by the celebrated Lorriane Hansberry Theatre and the Tony Award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe in association with Festival 2000. Liza, Little Eva, George, Topsy, Simon Legree and Tom are all here - but with a difference! Opening with a prologue that brings Stowe face-to-face with her characters -- this "Uncle Tom's Cabin" examines the problem of race in America at its roots - allowing no easy answers.
