The Battle of Brooklyn- A Farce of Two Acts

August 25, 2023, 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

This event is RAIN OR SHINE. If weather makes it impossible to perform outside, join us in the Great Room of the Old Stone House.

 

Watch a short play written by snarky British loyalists in 1776 to mock the American defeat in the first and largest battle of the War for Independence.

 

Was the Revolution a scam? Were the Founding Fathers idiots? The anonymous author of The Battle of Brooklyn, A Farce of Two Acts thought so!

 

Come down to the Lawn at OSH to enjoy this funny piece of 247-year-old propaganda – lovingly abridged, introduced, and directed by local historian Dylan Yeats.

 

Event will include a tasting from Brooklyn-based, history-minded, friends at Hercules Mulligan Rum and Rye!
