The Lewis and Clark Expedition told through the eyes of York, William Clark’s personal manservant and slave.

Tickets and showtimes available HERE!

Directed by Susan Hardie, York tells the story of William Clark’s manservant/slave, who was the only Black member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, 1803-06. The play features African drumming by the character. David Casteal, who has created the drum rhythms for this piece, will portray York.

The focus is ultimately on York’s spiritual journey as a slave, particularly in light of the freedom and celebrity he experienced as a result of his involvement in the Corps of Discovery expedition.

The portrayal of York is from age four until five years after the expedition, tracking his journey from ignorant and submissive slave to accomplished and outgoing frontiersman, to an archetypal Black American.
