Go Ye Therefore… is a story about two southern women, one white, one black, both daughters and granddaughters of Southern Baptist preachers.  Rooted in different racial and cultural worship traditions, Kathy Randels and Rebecca Mwase trouble the waters of their Baptist upbringings in search of spirituality’s truth, and revel in the unifying joy of song as they explore the Bible, Baptist history, and the tenuous relationship between the missionary and the native.

Directed by Ashley Sparks, designed by Jeff Becker, with music by Emanuel Burke, costumes by Laura Sirkin-Brown, choreography by Monique Moss and lighting design by Hannah Adams.  Scriptwork: Lisa Shattuck.  Stage manager: Rebecca McLaughlin.
