Alley Theatre presents Alley All New Festival: Enlightened
It’s 1776. Witchcraft meets enlightenment aspirations when news of the Declaration of Independence drifts into the Pennsylvania woods. Mr. Ames is inspired by the founder's notions of equality but his high ideals may not extend to his entire household. His wife and slaves ask, “When it says all men are created equal, does that mean me?”
The Alley All New Festival will present a workshop performance of an intellectually provocative new play by frequent Alley artist Theresa Rebeck, the most Broadway-produced female playwright of our time.
