"Universal truths of love and language"

This piece gives an extended synopsis of the upcoming Nashville threatre production of "Atlanta:"
It tells the story of a Yankee soldier who finds himself behind enemy lines, face to face with a Confederate. He kills the rebel, puts on his clothes in an attempt to save himself, but is then captured as a deserter. It's up to a slave to save him — a slave named Hamlet who's part of a band of Shakespearean revelers who perform for their colonel and his troops. Together, they delve into universal truths of love and language, even as Atlanta burns.
