Berkeley based Inferno Theatre brings its most recent show “My Recollect Time” to Placerville on Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6, to Studio 81 at El Dorado High School, 561 Canal St. in Placerville. Curtain is 8 p.m. for both performances.
Placerville theater artist Jamie Van Camp is one of the three ensemble theater performers, together with Nkechi and Valentina Emeri.
Jamie Greenblatt’s play tells the inspiring story of the historical figure Mary Fields, a former slave, and the transformations she undergoes as she struggles to live a free and authentic life after Emancipation.
Her life journey takes her from Tennessee to Montana via the Mississippi as a riverman (she passed as a man) and includes her close friendship with the charismatic Ursuline nun, Mother Amadeus.
The play is directed and designed by Giulio Cesare Perrone. The sound design is by Norman Kern and lighting design is by Michael Palumbo.
Tickets are available at the door on a sliding scale donation by cash or check only. The play is recommended for 11 and over.
