I Know It Was the Blood: The Totally True Adventures of a Newfangled Black Woman
August 8, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - August 10, 2019 @ 9:00 pm
The award-winning “I Know It Was The Blood: The Totally True Adventures of a Newfangled Black Woman” makes its U.K. Premiere at Camden Fringe! In a story of triumph tinged with bits of heartache, a scrappy New Jersey girl-child navigates a changing world and finds the courage to live life on her own terms. Actress, soprano, and storyteller Tara Lake takes audiences on a journey into the world of African-American girlhood in the 1980s-1990s – a world steeped in family Sundays, church conventions, and extravagant reunions, weddings, and funerals. In this unforgettable sojourn embracing American Southern Roots, Gospel Rhythms, and Queer Identity, one family’s love conquers all. Join us for an unforgettable performance of soul-rich theatre, storytelling, song, and poetry! Suitable for ages 13 and older.
