Genre: Drama
by Jan Buttram, directed by Kate Bushmann

When slave auctioneer Malcolm Jeters falls from his mule in Mississippi's Natchez Trace, he is left stranded, injured and starving. Tom, a runaway slave, discovers him, offering a sliver of hope in the vast swampland. The meeting triggers a desperate negotiation for Malcolm's rescue. Who will pay the highest price?

LOST ON THE NATCHEZ TRACE co-stars Peter Brouwer, previously seen at Abingdon in MY DEAH, GOD'S DAUGHTER and Ms. Buttram's GLORY GIRLS, as Malcolm Jeters; and Leopold Lowe, Audelco Award winner for his work in Classical Theatre of Harlem's revival of MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM, as Tom.

The production has scenic design by Andrew Lu; costume design by Catherine Siracusa and Sidney Levitt; lighting design by Travis McHale; and sound design by David Margolin Lawson. The Production Stage Manager is Genevieve Ortiz.

Peter Brouwer has appeared in several Abingdon productions, including Jan Buttram's GLORY GIRLS, BEACHWOOD DRIVE, MY DEAH, and GOD'S DAUGHTER. He appeared in the recent remake of "Arthur" (as an auctioneer) and is best known for his role in the original "Friday the 13th." He also works as an auctioneer at fundraising benefits for numerous organizations, including Abingdon, of which he is a founding member.
