About this show

Complicated, passionate and difficult, John Quincy Adams was a brilliant diplomat, congressman, and ineffectual one-term president known for his eloquence, arrogance, and integrity. This unique, highly theatrical play by award-winning playwright Aaron Posner (Stupid F**king Bird) imagines key confrontations between JQA and some of America's most dynamic figures: George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, his own father John Adams, and more. At once provocative, haunting, and hilarious, this power play challenges the way we think of our country, our government and ourselves.
