Storrowton Village, First Person
February 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST
Storrowton Village Museum presents A Revolution of Her Own!™ by History at Play™, LLC’s J. Kalaora.
A Revolution of Her Own!™features History At Play™, LLC’s (HAP, LLC) Founder and Artistic Director J. Kalaora in an immersive solo performance as Deborah Samson [Sampson], the first woman to successfully enlist, to professionally fight in, and to be honorably discharged from the American Military. The hour-long program chronicles her life: An indentured servant by age five, Deborah grew up in a man’s world, where women were naught but second-class subjects. Without the ability to vote nor own property, Deborah knew options were limited; breaking the rules may be necessary to accomplish a greater goal in life. Experience Deborah’s arduous upbringing, one and a half years of active combat, and success as America’s first professional female soldier, through interactive stories and authentic colonial attire. Deborah’s passion will take you back in time!
