Presented by Let's Make History Productions

Combining tongue-in-cheek humor with a dash of derring-do, The American Revolution brings to life George and Martha Washington, King George III, Sam Adams, Paul Revere, John and Abigail Adams, Thomas Paine and Thomas Jefferson, amongst others, to bring you the origin story of the greatest democratic experiment in world history.
In this 50-minute play, seven actors, all performing two feet off the ground, share 21 square feet of space to recreate the entire American fight for independence from Lexington to Yorktown. Using only the actors’ bodies, voices, and (pantomimed) cannons the show evokes an epic time period in American history. 

The American Revolution is directed by Marc Frost. The cast includes: Terrill Braswell, Kelly Conrad, Alicia Crosby, Rasell Holt, Glenn Kraft, James Mercer, Mackenzie Possage, Aja Singletary, and Caroline Watson.
The show was originally devised by the following members of Theater Unspeakable: Brittany Anderson, Parker Arnold, Zachary Baker-Salmon, Marc Frost, Patrice Foster, Jeffery Freelon, Kyle Geissler, Jason Hammond, Trey Hobbs, Kathleen Hoil, Quenna Lené, Katie Mancuso, Aaron Rustebakke, Lyn Scott, Vanessa Valliere, Ryan Westwood and Thomas Wynne.
