Larry Spotted Crow Mann’s new work "Samuel Vickers"will be created and presented at Double Edge Theatre. Written and performed by Mann, it will follow the cross-generational journey of Nipmuc men who served in the armed forces dating back to the Revolutionary War. Community outreach and education programs in collaboration with the Ohketeau Cultural Center will support the performance programming.

Mann, a citizen of the Nipmuc tribe, is Co-Director of the Ohketeau Cultural Center in Ashfield, and an award-winning writer, poet, and cultural educator; traditional storyteller, drummer, and dancer, and motivational speaker on topics including youth sobriety and environmental awareness.
