Can someone be owned? Can a song free you? What's the cost of freedom? These are the gutsy questions Amanda Kemp takes on through her soulful dramas that will leave you tapping your feet and wiping your eyes. See for yourself at Theatre for Transformation's "Sister Friend: Phillis Wheatley and Obour Tanner on Freedom, Love and the Divine" written by Dr. Amanda Kemp and directed by Dave Ebersole.
