ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Be there for a dramatic staged reading that explores the surprising and dynamic connections between American revolutionary ideals and Poland's desire for freedom. Written and directed by Nancy Keystone and created in collaboration with Critical Mass Performance Group.
Polish General Thaddeus Kosciusko befriended Thomas Jefferson when he fought on behalf of the patriots in the American Revolution. The notions he brought back to Poland fostered a national desire for democratic freedoms that remained unfulfilled until the success of the “Solidarity” social movement of the 1980s.
Join U.S.A. Hoi Fellow Nancy Keystone and her Critical Mass Performance Group for a dramatic staged reading of a work-in-process that explores the centuries-old and often surprising connections between American ideals, politics, and culture with Poland’s struggle for independence.
Read an insightful interview with Nancy Keystone on SkirBlog and discover how a Gary Cooper poster helped to inspire this work.
