One Man Play: York

York graphic

04/07/2018 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

This is event is free and open to the public.

In a powerful, one-man performance, David Casteal plays the character York as “a whirlwind, a force of nature, a vital, laughing, raging bundle of muscle and brain” – Jim Kershner, The Spokesman-Review

York was William Clark’s personal slave, accompanying the Corps of Discovery as the only black man on the Lewis and Clark Expedition. In a stirring performance, Casteal weaves the story of York’s challenges and accomplishments, blending gripping first-person narration with energetic, live African drumming and traditional Native American drum recordings.

The Lewis and Clark Expedition left St. Louis in the Spring of 1804 and returned in the Fall of 1806.   This story portrays York from age four through five years after the Expedition.

Although York proved an important participant in the Expedition, as a black man and a slave, York was not recognized as a member of the Corps of Discovery until nearly 200 years after the Expedition, when, in 2001, President Bill Clinton posthumously awarded York the rank of Honorary Sergeant in the Corps of Discovery. Don’t miss this important story.

York premiered at Spokane Civic Theatre on April 29, 2005, as directed by Susan Hardie and performed by David Casteal, with  performances in New York City in July 2006.

This production was conceived by two Spokane-based talents, actor and African drummer David Casteal and playwright Bryan Harnetiaux (Spokane Civic Theatre’s Playwright-in-Residence), and has been performed across the northwest to packed
houses and standing ovations.
