Sydnee Johnson wrote this online one-act, inspired by and adapted from Phillis Wheatley's poem "On Imagination." Johnson's piece gives a contemporary gloss to the words of Wheatley, who was born a slave but became one of the best-known published poets in 18th-century America. It was developed as part of Theatre Above the Law's 48-Hour Adaptation Festival.
