The Most Spectacularly Lamentable Trial of Miz Martha Washington
September 1, 2022 @ 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, repeating until October 9, 2022
The recently widowed “Mother of America” lies alone in her Mount Vernon bed, ravaged by illness and attended to by the very same enslaved people who will be free the moment she dies. The form-shifting fever dream that follows takes us deep into the uncomfortable and horrific ramifications of this country’s original sin. Dizzying and fantastical, this skewering Chicago premiere from James Ijames’s daring voice puts the American myth on trial.
