Event Description:
In coordination with TheatreSquared and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, "A View from the Ridge" will feature readings from Mary Kathryn Nagle’s play, "Sovereignty," which wrestles with the Ridge family’s legal legacy and how the broken treaties of the past reverberate in the Cherokee Nation today.

In "Sovereignty," Sarah Ridge Polson, a young Cherokee lawyer fighting to restore her Nation’s jurisdiction, must confront the ever-present ghosts of her grandfathers. With shadows stretching from 1830s Cherokee Nation (now present-day Georgia) through Andrew Jackson’s Oval Office to the Cherokee Nation in present-day Oklahoma, "Sovereignty" asks how high the flames of anger can rise before they ultimately consume the truth.

Community and U of A faculty experts will also provide further perspective on the themes the play explores and how the family’s legacy lives on in Fayetteville in the objects and ideas that survive.

Amy Herzberg, distinguished professor and head of the performance area in U of A's Department of Theatre, will direct the reading.

The play is receiving national attention and praise across the United States, including articles in The New York Times, the Washington Post and American Theatre magazine.

This event is part of a series of events that are centered on modern-day playwright Mary Kathryn Nagle, her ancestor John Ridge and his influential Cherokee family’s legacy.
