by David Casteal and Bryan Harnetiaux, direction by Susan Hardie
From childhood to post-expedition, York chronicles the largely untold story of William Clark's manservant/slave who was the only Black member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1803-1806). York is a poetic antecedent to the African-American struggle post slavery. The play tracks York's spiritual journey from submissive slave who achieves mild celebrity to accomplished and outgoing frontiersman, and then ultimately to an archetypal Black American.
