A More Perfect Union @ Center for the Arts, College of Staten Island
Nov 4 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm

The story of “A More Perfect Union” begins in Boston, 1773 and ends at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, 1787. The play covers the critical and tempestuous time in our nation’s history in which revolution, war, and a failed attempt at self-governing finally led to the writing of the U.S. Constitution and the birth of our country as we know it today. Briefly addressing the American Revolution and the underlying causes thereof, the majority of the play examines that period between the winning of our Independence and the formation of our national government.

The spirited musical, for young and family audiences, theatrically examines the various legal and financial troubles that arose from thirteen independent states trying to coexist without a unifying governing body. For example: the economic chaos that resulted from each state having its own currency. In a hilarious scene, personifications of New York, New Jersey and France attempt to negotiate trade with each other while having to contend with two separate state taxation laws and systems of money.

***Two Performances: 10:00 a.m. & 11:30 a.m. Each performance runs about 50 minutes.***
