Play Notes

× Written & Directed by Charles Robertson | Starring Cassel Miles A new Canadian play about the life of Josiah Henson, the "real" Uncle Tom. One man and a bucket brings one incredible story to life. This one-person show engages audiences with a mix of drama, dance, and movement to reveal the first chapter of Josiah Henson's life from slavery to freedom.

It is a collaboration between actor, Cassel Miles, and writer/director, Charles Robertson. Using excerpts from Josiah Henson’s autobiography and vernacular from the time, Robertson creates a realistic, yet poetic dialogue. “The play takes Henson's own words and spins them into compelling theatre” explains Robertson. In addition to Josiah, there are thirty other characters in the play all played by Miles. Josiah Henson defied adversity. Morally brave and resilient, he is a role model.

The runtime for this performance is 90 minutes
