Deborah
By Elizabeth A. M. Keel

September 25th, 2020 & October 2nd, 9th, 2020


A mostly true tale of a revolutionary woman
This play is a feisty reimagining of the life of Deborah Sampson, a real woman who dressed as a man and fought in the Revolutionary War alongside soldiers like Paul Revere. Inspired by the infamous British sailor Hannah Snell, she chooses to swap her fate for a male's and enlists in the Continental Army. Despite its difficulties, she proves a fantastic soldier. After the war she squeezes uncomfortably into the role of wife and mother and saves the family farm by becoming a successful author. This rebellious drama vivifies her astonishing journey straddling the realms of both genders embodying mother and warrior, loner and celebrity, wild rover and wife.
