The cast of Gabrielle Fulton's Uprising. (Chris Banks)

Reviewed in this week's Washington City Paper: Gabrielle Fulton's Uprising, about Osborne Perry Anderson, who wrote the only first-hand account of the doomed 1859 raid on Harper's Ferry led by abolitionist John Brown. In this "rolling world premiere" at Alexandria, Virginia's MetroStage, a mix of Negro spirituals and original songs power Fulton's story of a romance between Anderson — a fugitive for his role in Brown's raid — and a Pennsylvania field hand named Sal.

Some wonky characterization aside, I found it to be a powerful and not-glib exploration of heroism and sacrifice. My review is here.
