April 20-May 13, 2018   Kalita Humphreys Theater

On the eve of the state’s secession in 1861, Governor Sam Houston is torn between loyalty to Texas and loyalty to the United States. As he weighs the terrible choice he must make, certain of the devastating cost of either path, Houston tells Jeff Hamilton (his slave and office clerk) of a time when he, and the Union itself, stood trial. This searing, world-premiere drama presents the true story of some of America’s most famous leaders—Andrew Jackson, Francis Scott Key, and John Quincy Adams, among others—and one man’s struggle with what it means to be brave in the land of the free.  Contains profane language and racial slurs. Recommended for people Middle School age and up.

My daughter attends Sam Houston State University in Huntsville and I thought I knew "everything" about Sam, but this play is truly entertaining and enlightening with new information showing that SAM was just human, like the rest of us.
