The Battle of Brooklyn, A Farce of Two Acts

August 27 @ 8:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Watch a 20-minute play written by snarky British loyalists in 1776 to mock the American defeat in the first 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 in Two Acts thought so!

Commemorate the anniversary of the battle with this funny piece of 244-year-old propaganda – lovingly abridged, introduced, and directed by local historian Dylan Yeats.

Watch on Zoom here.

In the meantime, enjoy a preview here.
