New Ohio Theatre and anecdota present

MAY 23 - JUNE 3

A solo by Erica Fae
With words by Sarah Wakefield
Made in collaboration with Nicholas Galanin
Creative & Cultural Consultant Sheldon Raymore

An Archive Residency Production, in collaboration with IRT Theater


Drawn directly from Sarah Wakefield’s auto-biographical narrative Six Weeks in the Sioux Tepees, SAVED AGAIN AND BY HIM recounts Sarah’s experiences during the 1862 Dakota Uprising in Minnesota – a conflict that ended with President Lincoln’s approval of the largest mass execution in United States history. Were it not for the protection provided by one Dakota man and his family, Sarah likely would not have lived to tell her story. A complicated narrator, by turns admirable and offensive, Sarah’s gratitude and prejudice endow her voice with sharp resonance for audiences still grappling with the legacy of America’s brutal past (and present).

Running time: 75 minutes, no intermission

Sound Design by William Neal
Lighting Design by Christina Watanabe

anecdota is dedicated to telling too-little-known true stories of American history. Its first piece, Take What Is Yours, centered on Alice Paul and the woman’s suffrage movement, and was a Critic’s Pick in the NY Times. Fae’s feature film To Keep the Light, about a female lighthouse keeper in the 1860’s, won the Fipresci Prize in Germany, Best Director at Berlin Indp Film Festival, and numerous other festival awards. Her second feature film, set in New England in the 1840’s, is currently in development.

The Archive Residency is New Ohio Theatre's ongoing development and presenting program, providing a two-year commitment of time, space, and support to select independent theatre companies. Each residency culminates in a world premiere of a new work. In partnership with IRT Theatre, our neighbors in the Archive Building, we provide independent theatre companies with that most elusive and invaluable resource: an artistic home.

The Archive Residency is generously supported, in part, with funds from The NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, The National Endowment for the Arts, and the Mental Insight Foundation.
