“Elizabeth Davidson, a professional actor for 40 years, first began thinking about creating a one-woman show in 1994 at the suggestion of fellow actor and African American activist, Barry Scott. Another African American friend and middle school teacher, Mary Churchwell, suggested that she write about Harriet Beecher Stowe and the powerful effects of Uncle Tom’s Cabin on the history of this natio…n. Ms. Davidson was struck by the potency of the idea, and researched Harriet’s life for five years before putting pen to paper in 1999. Since then, she has written 17 drafts of the play in order to get biographical and historical material and actual scenes from Uncle Tom’s Cabin perfectly balanced for dramatic presentation.” http://www.elizabethdavidson.net/index.html
