Eisenhower: This Piece of Ground

About This Show

A “fictional eavesdropping on President Dwight D. Eisenhower at his Gettysburg, Pennsylvania farm. It is 1962 and New York Magazine has published its first list ranking the American Presidents in order of greatness. Pondering his placement on the list, Eisenhower looks back on his life — his Kansas upbringing, his decorated Army career, his victories in World War II, and his two terms as President — contemplating the qualities and adversities that make an American President great.” The play is adapted from a collection of Eisenhower’s memoirs, speeches, and letters, with the support of the Eisenhower Foundation and permission from David and Susan Eisenhower and the Eisenhower family.
