“Steal Away” Dramatic One-Woman Show

Back by popular demand! “Steal Away: the Story of a Homesteader and an Exoduster” is a dramatic one-woman show, written and performed by Penny Musco, about a little-known migration of African Americans. Set in 1880, “Steal Away” is told from the perspective of Priscilla, a white woman who leaves the East to homestead in the Plains with her husband and children. She crosses paths with Abigail and her family, former slaves who fled the South after Reconstruction ended. Penny Musco is a freelance writer and member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, whose work has appeared in a variety of publications.
