Deborah Sampson by Anne Pasquale
This is the story of Deborah Sampson, a remarkable woman whose life is largely ignored by most historical texts. She was known as the “Secret Soldier,’ the American Revolution’s only acknowledged female combat veteran. A descendant of William Bradford and Miles Standish, Deborah Sampson spent her childhood in poverty and was sold into indentured servitude. Anne Pasquale and her accompanist bring this story to life through interactive re-enactments and storytelling. The audience will understand the plight of the colonies and the need for revolution through the eyes of this extraordinary young woman. This performance, highlighted by stage combat and live music of the period, is a perfect accompaniment for anyone interested in colonial history or the American Revolution.
