Soul Rep Theatre Company presents Do No Harm
Soul Rep Theatre Company, in partnership with SMU’s Perkins School of Theology, will present the world premiere of co-founder Anyika McMillan-Herod’s newest play, Do No Harm. The play was commissioned by Dr. Evelyn Parker and the Association of Practical Theology two years ago and was to be performed this past April at the APT’s international conference in Houston, but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The production was filmed in November in a slave cabin at Dallas Heritage Village, and 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.”
The production can be viewed at any time between January 11 and 31.
