The American Revolution
Devised by Theater Unspeakable
Directed by Marc Frost
Seven actors—suspended on a platform two feet off the ground—share 21 square feet of space to recreate the entire American fight for independence from Lexington to Yorktown. Using only the actors’ bodies, voices and (pantomimed) cannons, the show evokes an epic time period in American history. Combining tongue-in-cheek humor with a dash of derring-do, The American Revolution displays the company’s rowdy brand of bare-boned and imaginative physical theater in its first ever extended run in Chicago.
