Transcript 14 MONTROSE VOICE/FEBRUARY 13, 1987 The Ensemble Remembers Slavery Review by Bill O'Rourke Montrose Voice To make Do Lord, Remember Me (The Ensemble), playwright James de Jongh took recorded interviews with black men and women in their eighties and nineties. He excerpted the best, most representative stories and then molded them into some dramatic unity. This is basically the same process with which A Chorus Line was written about Broadway dancers. It has resulted in the same rich, quiet, quasi- psyche.

Then he becomes Nat Turner lead- Steve Epstein is one of the Outlaw Comics ing a doomed uprising. Finally, he becomes one of the black men who fought victoriously for the North. The play stops at the end of the War Between the States. Slavery is over! The emotional and physical scars on those who actually lived through it never quite healed and should not be forgotten.
