A New York Lamentation

June 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

“A New York Lamentation,” a play written by the Rev. Chuck Kramer, rector of St. James’ Episcopal Church in Hyde Park, brings to life the tragic history of slavery that existed in New York City and the Hudson Valley for more than 200 years. All the characters in the play are real historical figures, including the enslaved, the enslavers, and the bolitionists.

“A New York Lamentation” is an initiative of the Episcopal Diocese of New York’s Reparations Committee, which is tasked with addressing the legacy of slavery and its ongoing impact on our society and church.

“A New York Lamentation” is directed by Jeannine Otis, a musician, actress, playwright, director and author. She is also the musical director for St. Mark’s in the Bowery in Manhattan.
