Banshee's Next - Mine Eyes Hath Seen

April of 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the surrender of the Confederacy that ended the U.S. Civil War. Banshee's marking the occasion by bringing back to the stage it's extraordinary piece, Mine Eyes Hath Seen.

This production explores the Civil War through the first person writings of those who lived through it. Built from letters, diaries and journals and infused with songs and live music, Mine Eyes brings to life the varied perspectives and harrowing experiences of America's most important historical event.

This is the kind of original piece that should be optioned by some fatly funded community-arts organization and be made accessible to kids and classrooms everywhere. Nowhere will our youth get a more engrossing view of American history at one of its darkest moments and, from these authentic accounts of heartbreak and wrenching loss, possibly come to understand what war and freedom mean. - Back Stage West

Mine Eyes Hath Seen opens at the Banshee March 28, 2015 for an eight week run. Don't miss it.!
