Do No Harm, Soul Rep co-founder Anyika McMillan-Herod’s newest play, was commissioned by theologian Dr. Evelyn Parker and the Association of Practical Theology. The play explores the story of three enslaved women – Anarcha, Betsey, and Lucy – who were experimented on without anesthesia by Dr. J. Marion Sims, credited as “The Father of Modern Gynecology.” This is a story not only of pain, but of sisterhood and survival.

Do No Harm was filmed in November 2020 in a slave cabin at Dallas Heritage Village and made its world premiere as a hybrid play/film for Soul Rep’s recent 25th Anniversary season. The company looks forward to sharing this powerful and insightful story as originally intended through the 2021/2022 Elevator Project – a traditional play for the stage and a live audience.

This production is part of AT&T Performing Arts Center's Elevator Project.
