The Legend of John Henry

The Legend of John Henry 

 

Family Weekend Performance Dates: February 11-12, 2023

 

Adapted by Larry and Vivian Snipes 

 

 

Description:  

I’ll die with this hammer in my hand, Lord, Lord—
I’ll die with this hammer in my hand. 

 

It was the age of steel drivers and riverboat captains, of telegraphs and travel on horseback, of explosive dynamite and great coal steamers chugging along the rails. The tracks of The Transcontinental Railroad were being laid down faster than you could shake a stick at them – and John Henry knew he had to follow those tracks to his destiny. But when a new invention threatens to take his livelihood and those of all his steel-driving companions, he decides it’s time to take a stand. The race is on between man and machine, and John Henry is committed to the very end – even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.
