Abstract:

"As the words drawn from their letters, diaries and books reveal, John and Abigail Adams were singular people: proud, loving, articulate and filled with the dedication and spirit required to share in the forging of a nation. Through their words, with rhymed addenda spoken and acted by the company, the stuff of their lives-and the drama of the Revolutionary War, the Continental Congress and the Declaration of Independence-are made eloquently and vividly real on the stage. Blending history and humanity into a vital theatre piece, the play offers a lesson for our time, and all time, and a memorable experience to be shared and not soon forgotten." -- publisher's description.
