Thomas and Sally
A World Premiere New Play By Thomas Bradshaw, Directed by Jasson Minadakis
An explosive world premiere by 2017 PEN Award-winner Thomas Bradshaw, Thomas and Sally gets up close and personal with founding father Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings, the enslaved woman who mothered six of his children. Bradshaw takes us behind the scenes—and into the beds—of American history with the Hemings-Jeffersons and the rock stars of the Revolution: Ben Franklin, John & Abigail Adams & the Marquis de Lafayette.
