"One surefire crowd-pleaser” - "N.Y. Times
A West Coast Premiere at Sacred Fools Theatre
The high-stakes world of Civil War–era horse racing sets the stage for this captivating drama during a time of slavery and Reconstruction. Colonel Wiley Johnson owns both Simon Cato, a smart, cocky ‘colored’ jockey, and his horse, Pure Confidence. Cato uses his wits and his championship winnings to buy his and his wife's freedom, but the Civil War changed everything.
Originally commissioned by the Alabama Shakespeare Festival and Actors Theatre of Louisville, Pure Confidence premiered in the Humana Festival of New American Plays.
This surprisingly funny and daring story takes a look at the complexity of race relations, love and dignity in the second half of the nineteenth century. Against a vivid backdrop of fast horses, gritty racetracks and high-stakes betting, PURE CONFIDENCE is an extraordinary tale of human triumphs and failings.
"Rollickingly accomplished…has a big juicy vision, a stylistic verve and a credible story that supports its ideas." - Variety
