Stage production, Tom Cat to make its debut in city of Louisville
Tom Cat will open Sunday, Oct. 16 at the historic Ursuline Arts Center
By: DreamStyle Media
Tom Cat is a tale that takes place in 1951 Indianapolis, Indiana and Kincaid County Mississippi;
This pre-civil rights story will echo many of the same social ills that are currently plaguing American society including racism, classism, sexism, police brutality, crime and violence.
Tom Cat is ultimately a story of love not just stopping with lovers, but also families who are on the opposite sides of the social spectrum. Tom Cat is also a tale of forgiveness and redemption.
This historic performance was originally written and produced by Jamie Rhodes. Rhodes is a writer, playwright, screenwriter, director and producer. Tom Cat was inspired by the short story, Blood Burning Moon by Jean Toomer set in the 1920s.
Rhodes was able to update the story to reflect issues that happened during the 50s and also urbanizing the story by including music.
