“Take My Hand” (A Blues Man’s Path to Gospel)
Playwright: Lillie Evans
It's 1932 and Thomas Dorsey, a self-taught pianist, is well on his way to being one of the most prolific blues talents in blues history. His vision is to marry church music with blues rhythms—it was called gospel. Pressured to choose between the blues he loves and the music he wants to change, what should he do and what price will he pay to find the answer.
The play was granted a reading at 2017 National Black Theater Festival.
