WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Four unarmed protesters are dead, and eight more lie wounded by occupying British troops. Angry citizens crowd the streets, and rumor has it that 10,000 men are about to enter Boston to remove the soldiers by force. If acting governor Thomas Hutchinson can't find a way to stem the tide of violence, he faces open rebellion. The decisions he and Boston's leaders make in the aftermath of the Boston Massacre could save a city or tear apart an empire.
Following last year's sold-out run, Blood on the Snow returns to Boston's Old State House, the site where, 250 years ago, Boston's leaders put Massachusetts on the road to revolution. Viewers experience a dramatic face-to-face encounter with one of the formative events of the American Revolution in the very room where it happened.
Note: Due to the intimate nature of this production, there is no late seating.
