The year is 1864. The Civil War has ripped America in half. Who can help end the war once and for all? Enter Ellen Bond, Union Spy! Mary Bowser is the (real!) freed former slave who risked it all to go undercover as "Ellen Bond, dim-witted but able" house slave in the Confederate White House. "Ellen" cooks, cleans, and uses her photographic memory to collect military intel from the papers on Davis's desk. This action-packed new seriocomedy also features contemporary music and dance, illuminating Mary’s exhilarating visions for the end of the Confederacy and the future of America.
