FOURTEEN: A Theatrical Performance
For a limited production run beginning on June 19, visitors can experience FOURTEEN, a moving theatrical performance that sheds new light on the Reconstruction era and the ratification of the 14th Amendment. Through dramatic interpretation of original texts, such as Frederick Douglass’s open letter “To My Old Master,” the 30-minute performance will bring to life the leaders, influential figures, and everyday Americans who were central to the era.
FOURTEEN will run Tuesdays through Saturdays, from June 19 through August 10; please check the daily program guide upon arrival for that day's show times. Additional performance dates for the fall and spring will be announced later in the year.
This production has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
