EXCITING PICCOLO SPOLETO
THEATRE FESTIVAL OFFERING...
"Frederick Douglass... No Turning Back"
as pastor Brewster
Frederick Douglass, one of our greatest
American heroes, was an electrifying orator,
abolitionist, Christian leader, writer and newspaper
He thrilled audiences across America and England
in his quest to abolish slavery and create true freedom and equality in America.
The fact Douglass was a slave until he escaped at age 20 in 1838, is secondary to his astounding accomplishments as a stunning and eloquent agent of social reform. He could have chosen to live in Europe, but he felt God called him to create freedom for all people in America, so he returned and spent his life challenging our society.
Kyle Taylor, who stars as Mr. Douglass, has appeared in theater productions in New York City and Los Angeles, including A River Niger starring Esther Rolle (of CBS “Good Times”), MYRON in Black & White in West Hollywood and in John Guare’s, Six Degrees of Separation at Center Stage Playhouse, in NYC.
Locally, Kyle created the role of Samuel in the award-winning docudrama, John Laurens’ War for Moving Images Group at Actors’ Theatre of South Carolina. He also received rave reviews for his portrayal of Dr. Martin Luther King in The Mountaintop for Pure Theatre, Crown in Porgy and Bess at the historic Dock Street Theatre and as Crooks in Of Mice & Men at Threshold Repertory Theatre.
Dates: May 30, June 3rd & 8th @ 7:30 pm, June 11, @ 3:00 pm. Circular Congregational Church, 150 Meeting Street. Adults $21, Seniors/Students $16.

REVIEW: “RADICAL SON” World Premiere Play...
by Sandy Katz, American Theatre Critics Association
Showing their passion for authentic American historic heroes,
Chris Weatherhead and Clarence Felder penned another
potentially award-winning play "Radical Son," to keep
company with "All For Liberty" named recently
One of Top Ten Revolutionary War Movies by the
Journal of the American Revolution.
Weatherhead directed this memorable and riveting play diligently at Threshold Repertory Theatre by using on-screen images ...and magnificently talented costume designers Bruce Bryson, Jean Robertson Hutchinson and Kathy Pilson.
Felder as Henry Laurens, father of the Radical Son, mesmerized the audience with his Shakespearian-style approach. However, he knows how to share the spotlight with other performers. Robbin Knight as the Radical Son held his own as he challenged his father's philosophy of freedom and slavery, both in contention with his fierce yearning for justice.
Adam Miles, Jamie Bellah, Kelvin Curtis, Terry Koster and Elizabeth Leigh Watson all contributed their talents to make this production a great one.
