This is quite possibly the most important work I've ever done. The ramifications of the work, the lessons taught and the experience of the history and modern ramifications of that history have life and death consequences. If ever there was a show to come see, this is the one. 

Sarah Ridge Polson, a young Cherokee lawyer fighting to restore her Nation’s jurisdiction, confronts the ever-present ghosts of her grandfathers. With shadows stretching from 1830s Cherokee Nation (now present-day Georgia) through Andrew Jackson’s Oval Office, along the fateful Trail of Tears, to the Cherokee Nation in present-day Oklahoma—Sovereignty travels the powerful intersections of personal and political truths; bridging our country’s distant past and imminent future.


"At a time when the current President of the United States thinks that the Trail of Tears is nothing more than a joke he can use as a political weapon, it is critical that Americans learn about the attempt, and failure, of President Andrew Jackson to completely eradicate my Nation and all Cherokee Nation citizens on the Trail of Tears. We are still here today, and I am so thankful that Marin Theatre Company is giving me the chance to share a story that most Americans have never heard."

Ten Bay Area stage actors we love

Craig Marker

Why we love him: This up-and-comer has a boyish face and a quick wit that has made him shine in everything from the warrior Xerxes in "The Persians" at the Aurora to a pizza delivery dude in "The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow" at San Jose Rep. A wonderfully clueless bad boy in Neil LaBute's "Reasons to be Pretty," Marker has emerged as one of the young MVPs of the regional theater scene.
