Travel Back in time. Find Harriet Tubman. Don’t F*** it Up.
Jeremy has a PhD in physics from Harvard. And a time machine. And a plan. Jeremy’s plan is to send his thieving cousin back in time to 1863 to find Harriet Tubman and give her guns. Lots and lots of guns.
Harry and the Thief is an epic summer blockbuster, a socially conscious riot of a play that mashes up costume melodrama with an over-the-top action movie to tell a story full of adventure, social relevance, and answering the call of destiny.
