Spring is in the air! And more, the dread virus will soon be vanquished (not soon enough)! Time to begin our return to normal.
The pandemic has robbed us of many things – loved ones, friends, time. For Rudely Stamp’d, we were robbed of performances – most of which were, sadly, cancelled. Of course, no one could predict when new performances might be scheduled, but we can now see light at the end of the tunnel.
Social distancing and masks may still be necessary, but gatherings for entertainment and education can begin again. So, let’s draw up the curtain and welcome a new season of conversations!
Rudely Stamp’d is now booking performances for summer and fall 2021 for their newest play “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.”
Anyone interested in booking a show should contact Maxfield at email@example.com or by calling (585) 478-3753. The play is designed for both outdoor and indoor performances.
