The Story

Nobody's Child

The Musical

On different sides of a divided America, two houses face battles of their own - against war, racism and their own hearts. Only one among them faces his battle alone…

… or so he believes.

 

Set against the backdrop of the decades surrounding the Civil War, “Nobody’s Child” chronicles the saga of the James and Stallings families - the former Virginia plantation gentry, the latter owners of a Maryland cotton mill.  Through the years the two families, as well as the slaves and workers on whom they rely, see their fortunes and fates steered by commerce and conflict alike - though none more than Jonathan, an orphan of mixed race, who unites them all in ways no one could imagine possible to both a past that haunts them, and a future awaiting those willing to risk, to love, to dream and to dare.
