Have you seen the @nytimes feature on Mary Kathryn Nagle and “Sovereignty”? #ArenaStagePowerPlay #newplay #worldpremiere #arenasovereignty // #Repost @nytimes ・・・ In 1839, a Cherokee Nation leader named John Ridge was stabbed to death in an act of political retribution. His influential father, Major Ridge, was assassinated the same day, and for the same reason. Mary Kathryn Nagle, photographed here by @justingellerson, is one of their direct descendants. In her play “Sovereignty,” she’s exhuming some family history that’s also American history. “It’s my family onstage,” the 34-year-old said after rehearsal at @arenastage in Washington, D.C. “It’s the story that was told to me from the time I was this big. I’ve carried it in me my whole life.” Her play, which opens next Wednesday in a world-premiere production, came out of @arenastage’s Power Plays initiative, which aims to tell a story of the United States in 25 new works over 10 years, with one play pegged to each decade since 1776. Mary Kathryn, who is a full-time lawyer as well as a playwright, is the first Native American voice in that mix. Visit the link in our profile to read more about her new play “Sovereignty.”

Don’t even ask about Position 5. World premiere plays sometimes require a few different versions. #arenasovereignty
