In These Fields is a folk opera by singer/songwriter Sam Gleaves and novelist/playwright Silas House. The play, which explores the importance of food in our history and culture, covers 175 years in the American South. The monologues, written by House, and songs, penned by Gleaves create a meditation on the people who have raised, prepared, and partaken of the food of the South.
Silas House is the nationally bestselling author of books like Eli the Good and Clay’s Quilt, and plays such as The Hurting Part and This Is My Heart For You. Sam Gleaves is a folk singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He has released four albums, including his most recent one, Ain’t We Brothers, which was produced by Grammy winner Cathy Fink.
The cast includes House and Gleaves along with award-winning actors and musicians Adanma Barton, Carla Gover, Jason Howard, and Deborah Payne. Special opening music will be performed by Tyler Hughes.
