A stirring historical musical—adapted from Jacqueline Woodson’s acclaimed children’s book—pays tribute to the women in Woodson’s own family, whose strength and knowledge have illuminated their daughters’ lives over seven generations.

Soonie shares the story of how her great-grandma was just 7 years old when she was sold to a big plantation without her parents. With only some fabric and needles to call her own, she began to stitch a Show Way: a quilt with secret meanings to show enslaved people the way to freedom.

As each generation passes, the quilt sheds light on the past and paves the road into the future, stitching together possibility and promise.
