Octavia E. Butler’s
Parable of the Sower
Created by Toshi Reagon & Bernice Johnson Reagon
Directed by Eric Ting

Co-presented by Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company

Parable of the Sower is a triumphant, mesmerizing work of rare power and beauty that illuminates deep insights on gender, race, and the future of human civilization. This theatrical concert brings together over 30 original anthems drawn from 200 years of black music to recreate Butler’s sci-fi, Afrofuturist masterpiece live on stage. With music and lyrics composed by Toshi Reagon in collaboration with her mother, Bernice Johnson Reagon (Sweet Honey in the Rock), this compelling work gives life to Butler’s acclaimed science fiction novel of the same name.
