Tickets on sale for one-man show ‘York’

“York,” the untold story of York, the only black man on the Lewis and Clark Expedition, comes to Bainbridge Performing Arts at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 4.

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).

Casteal transports audiences to 1804 in this riveting first-person account. As William Clark’s personal slave, York faced challenges that were inconceivable, exhilarating, and at times, harrowing. One part history and one part pure creative vision, Casteal’s passionate and playful portrayal is set against the driving backdrop of live West African drumming and traditional Native American drum recordings.

Tickets are $20 for adults, and $15 for students and seniors, at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, at 206-842-8569 or in person at BPA, 200 Madison Ave. North.
