Close your eyes and imagine yourselves traveling back in time to January 14, 1994, inside Barking Legs Theater. Your eyes open widely. You see the stark reality…a handsome, upper middle class white man, Doug Cooney, as Thomas Jefferson, and a sexy, hot, ardent, black woman, Karen Stephens, as Sally
Hemings…in bed together!

It is a mesmerizing shock to experience the intense chemistry and raw sexuality charging the inside of this black box theater. Through a fast-paced rendering of this morally forbidden relationship–told through performance art, dance, comedy, dialogue, and ardent love– this forbidden fruit, sex between a white
planter/aristocrat and his young, black slave mistress, is a story transcending time.
