DEBUT THIS SATURDAY IN WEST SPARTA, NY
The pandemic has been a real bummer in many ways, including many Rudely Stamp’d shows cancelled. But things are looking up and requests for shows are beginning to roll in again. To celebrate, we would like to announce a new conversation available – “Grant on the Eve of Victory.”
Set in late March 1865, this one act play features a conversation between Lt. General U.S. Grant and war correspondent George Alfred Townsend of the New York World. This late night informal interview features Grant’s recollections about Maj. General William Tecumseh Sherman, the Battle of Shiloh, surrender of Vicksburg and his thoughts about Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
Written and directed by Derek Maxfield, who also plays Grant, the play features Jess Scheuerman who portrays Townsend. Previously Scheuerman performed the part of Julia Grant in “Now We Stand by Each Other Always.”
“Grant on the Eve of Victory” will debut on Sept. 26th at the West Sparta, NY, Town Hall at 2:00 PM. The event is outdoors and open to the public.
Anyone interested in booking a show should contact Maxfield at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (585) 478-3753. The play is designed for both outdoor and indoor performances.
