Live Performance: The Runaway - 1st Floor Brown-Forman Theatre

Based on accounts about the Underground Railroad in New Albany and Louisville during the 1850’s, as well as accounts of life on along the Ohio river during that period, this interpretation imagines the hardships a runaway would have faced in this area and the support a freedman working on a steamboat could have provided a fugitive.
