Some wounds refuse to heal. Mary Kathryn Nagle’s daring new work, part of Washington DC’s 2018 Women’s Voices Theater Festival, travels the intersections of personal and political truths, historical and present struggles. Sarah Ridge Poison, a young Cherokee Lawyer fighting to restore her Nation’s jurisdiction, must confront the ever-present ghosts of her grandrathers. With shadows stretching from 1830s Cherokee Nation (now present-day Georgia) through Andrew Jackson’s Oval Office to the Cherokee Nation in present-day Oklahoma, Sovereignty asks how high the flames of anger can rise before they ultimately consume the truth.
