Student Theatre Production: "After Birth of a Nation"
After Birth of a Nation is a farcical send-up of history, sexism, racism, and politics, centered on a comically disastrous night at the White House in 1915.
On the night of the first-ever White House movie screening, First Daughter Margaret Wilson must find a way to break with her past and become her own woman. Yet at the showing of the infamous epic "The Birth of a Nation" she is forced to fend off advances from a young minister, confront her own racial intolerance, and somehow live up to her duty to her father and to her country without completely losing her mind.
This production is written and directed by Delaware County Community College faculty members David Robson and Stephen Smith.
