THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION
History in 50 minutes--seven actors, 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 actor's 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 Theater Unspeakable's rowdy brand of bare-boned and imaginative physical theater.

“The mime-based choreography is revelatory, defamiliarizing the American Revolution largely through bodily movement and stunning lighting design.”
“The things which one would anticipate being a problem are not—the space never seems claustrophobic, incredibly the blocking is graceful…the actors are able to go from one character to another with dexterity and skill.”
"I absolutely loved this show and I think everyone should go see it."
