Program Description:

THE ENDS WE SEEK by Ethan Norman

THE ENDS WE SEEK is a work of historical fiction, which moves between actual events in the 19th and 20th centuries. The play vividly and powerfully illustrates how major historical events — Lincoln’s election and Emancipation Proclamation, as well as the movement for civil rights inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. — impacted the lives of ordinary individuals and families. With sharp dialogue, inspired by true stories, and with captivating musical interludes, THE ENDS WE SEEK is more than an educational reinforcement of lessons learned from our Social Studies curriculum. It personalizes and humanizes the experience of ordinary people swept up in the events of history.
