The seven-member cast of playwright Karin Abarbanel’s “Dust of Egypt” returned to the Teatro Latea stage on the Lower East Side for their final two performances in the New York Theater Festival WinterFest 2022 last weekend. Directed by Rhonda “Passion” Hansome, the new 60-minute play illuminates Black abolitionist and women’s rights advocate Sojourner Truth’s unrelenting fight to rescue her son after he is abducted and taken down South. Produced by Domani Productions, the play explores tangled race relations, the ongoing toll of injustice and one woman’s courageous vision of a better future. For more info, visit
