In the spring of 2019, acclaimed Seattle actress Gin Hammond’s inspiring, 28-character solo play, Returning the Bones transports audiences to rural Texas during the era of Jim Crow laws and into the life of a young, black medical student searching for her place in the world.
Based on the life of Hammond’s aunt, Dr. Carolyn Beatrice Montier (aka “Bebe”), Returning the Bones brilliantly responds to one of life’s most challenging questions: How do you choose between your country, your people, and yourself? A surprisingly comical story, Returning the Bones brings us into intimate contact with the luminaries of the day including President Lyndon B. Johnson, Eleanor Roosevelt, James Baldwin, and Queen Elizabeth, to name a few.
Performed at the Erickson Theatre (1524 Harvard Ave, Seattle)
