Unique portrait of ‘Founding Father’ revealed in three-act play
Thomas Jefferson, played by Daniel Mayes, speaks to you.
Local playwright Don Pollard takes us into the study of the third President of the United States for a close-up chat that follows Jefferson from his presidency and tumultuous relationship with John Adams, through his efforts to expand the country westward, to the end of his life on the same July 4 that Adams died.
With artistic license, Jefferson gives a modern view on how the Founding Fathers’ plans have fared.
“This play is about whether there is still relevance to what Thomas Jefferson and the Founding Fathers said and did more than two centuries ago,” Pollard says. “At the end of the play, you’ll get the drift!”
