The American Revolution

March 6 - 20, 2022

Available March 6 – March 20

Recommended age group: 4th Grade+

History in 50 minutes—seven actors, two feet off the ground, share 21 square feet of space and 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. Combining tongue-in-cheek humor with a dash of derring-do, the American Revolution displays the company’s rowdy brand of bare-boned and imaginative physical theater.

Created by Marc Frost, Theater Unspeakable of Chicago, IL
