The Battle of Brooklyn- A Farce of Two Acts

August 27 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

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 246-year-old propaganda – lovingly abridged, introduced, and directed by local historian Dylan Yeats.
