Pocahontas: A World Premiere Original Telling

Native American playwright Kara Morrison's Pocahontas breathes new life into the story of America's first heroine. In this original telling, we meet Pocahontas just before she is set to leave her beloved home in Virginia to begin a new chapter with her husband, John Rolfe, in England. In the years prior to this period, Pocahontas was captured by English settlers to be used as a bargaining tool in their ongoing conflict with her father. Now married to Rolfe and kept away from her people, Pocahontas yearns to revisit her homeland. Rolfe joins his wife in the forest as she shares some of her cultural traditions and childhood memories. Through teaching and play, Pocahontas illuminates the role that Virginia's unique vegetation, waterways and animals played in her day-to-day life. This world premiere of Pocahontas explores self-reflection and healing by reconnecting to one's past, teaching us to appreciate life's gifts in the present. Enjoy this authentic take on an important story at the Serenbe Playhouse.
