Drama. Cast: 4.

The Big Four were a quartet of Black women who worked as conductors on the Underground Railroad through Quinn Chapel in Chicago. History remembers their stories in fragments. Now, in order to enter the Gates of Heaven, they must forget their lives and work on Earth. This powerful and spiritual journey utilizes movement, song, history, and spectacle to re-member these four women.

PIONEER was developed at the Playwrights’ Center.
