Be sure to catch fellow “Adaumbelle’s Quest” participant Rick Delaney along with George Lee Miles, Marcie Henderson, Richard Waits, Alex Marshall Brown, Lisa Riegel, Helen Highfield, Peter Tedeschi, J.M. McDonough, and Dan Snows in “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” directed by Alex Roe at the Metropolitan Playhouse (220 East Fourth Street) right here in NYC from November 13-December 12!

According to press notes “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” begins with the flight of slaves Eliza and George to freedom for themselves and their young son. Meanwhile, “Uncle” Tom remains behind, where he will be sold to pay a plantation owner’s debts and preserve the estate and the families living there. As Eliza and George struggle north, Tom heads south and encounters the cherubic Litte Eva, the disaffected St. Clare, the unyielding Miss Ophelia, and the incorrigible Topsy. Interpolated into the original story are clownish Yankees—Gumption Cute and Deacon Perry—but an unrelenting fate consigns Tom to “dark places and the merciless hands of Simon Legree.

The Metropolitan Playhouse is presenting a new production of an old play in a thoroughly contemporary presentation. 10 actors play both chorus and leads under Alex’s direction.
