Synopsis

​Belle is the extraordinary story of two recently freed slaves, husband and wife, journeying to the north in search of a new life. When they encounter a white woman working for the suffrage movement, they become entwined in the social and political upheaval that epitomizes Post Civil War America. The play is bursting with a lush theatrical language.
