Other Side of the Jordon


To celebrate the opening of the Harriet Tubman Museum in Cape May, Cape May Stage is proud to present a reading of Other Side of the Jordan.

While many know Harriet Tubman as the “Moses of her people,” few know that Cape May played an integral part in Tubman’s life. This play explores how Tubman became one of the most known conductors of the Underground Railroad while working in Cape May during the summers to pay for her winter abolitionist plans. The play also gives a fascinating look at what life was like in Cape May in 1851 and highlights several other well known abolitionists of the time.

Admission is by donation, and all proceeds will be donated to the Harriet Tubman Museum.

Please join us after the reading for a Talk-Back with the cast and creative team to discuss the important themes in the play.
