Four-time Emmy Award-winner Judy Tate’s play Fast Blood kicks off the festival. In the antebellum South, Effie and her mate Ham, slaves on a tobacco plantation, stumble across the body of a mysterious stranger who’s been lynched but is still alive. Their connection to the hanged man begins a journey into their past and a trek from vengeance to justice; darkness into light
