Following the critically acclaimed 2014 premiere and 2017 production at the Atlanta History Center of Natasha Tretheway's Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of poetry, LA Theatre Works captured an audio recording with the original cast. Native Guard is both an elegy to Tretheway's mother and a journey into Mississippi’s Civil War history. In poetry and song, she reflects on her mother’s passing while contemplating the former slaves who became soldiers in a regiment known as the Native Guard.
