Ben Butler

A Dramatic Comedy by Richard Strand

April 29 – May 16, 2021

Directed by Kate Revnell-Smith

Ben Butler is a smart and funny discourse on race, protocol and our sense of humanity, and it played to high critical acclaim during its Off Broadway run in 2016. The sharply comic play takes place at the beginning of the Civil War, at Virginia’s Union-held Fort Monroe under the command of General Benjamin Butler. When three escaped slaves show up seeking sanctuary, General Butler is faced with an impossible moral dilemma – follow the letter of the law and return the escapees back to the Confederacy, or make a game-changing move that could alter the course of US history.
