SynopsisAMERICAN PREMIERE Jesse Davidson, last of the Delta blues singers, died fourteen years ago. But legends continue to surround him – like the story about him selling his soul to the devil so that he could play guitar. And the story that he isn’t dead at all. When an English rock band hits town, their leader comes looking for truth and triggers a confrontation of mythic proportions. This strikingly original play is the story of one man’s passion for his art and the sacrifices of fame and fortune. Presented by arrangement with Ted Tulchin, Maidstone Productions
