Synopsis of the play of the month "The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead:
“A renewed vision of slavery where legend and reality are mixed and that hides a universal story: that of the struggle to escape one's own destiny. Cora is a young slave from a cotton plantation in Georgia. Abandoned by her mother, she lives subjected to the cruelty of her masters. When César, a young man from Virginia, tells him about the Underground Railroad, they both decide to start a risky flight to the North to achieve freedom.
The underground railway turns a fable of the time into reality and imagines a true network of clandestine stations linked by underground rails that cross the country. In her flight, Cora will go through the different states, and at each stop she will find a completely different world, while accumulating disappointments in the course of a descent into the hell of the human condition... Even so, there will also be glimpses of humanity that will make her keep the hope."
