The Underground Railroad
In April 2002 we opened an experiential theatre presentation titled “The Underground Railroad, Next Stop Freedom” at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. This motivational production features the ghost of Deborah Brown telling the story of the Underground Railroad and the history of black settlement in Canada. Through the eyes of Deborah Brown the audience experiences her and her husbands escape from slavery in Maryland, and their trip north as they follow the North Star to freedom in Canada.
