This program is part of the Hudson River Valley Ramble. This immersive solo performance escorts viewers back to May 2, 1775. Rachel Revere has only heard from her beloved husband Paul once since his legendary midnight ride on the 18th of April. Still isolated from one another due to the Siege of Boston, Rachel desperately creates a plan which shall safely take her children: six step-children from Paul’s first marriage and a newborn baby of their own, from the reach of the British Regular Army in Boston. In this program, the audience is invited to assist Rachel, as she carefully considers the dangers and demands of their escape plan. Find out if Rachel is successful in her perilous mission to unite her family, amidst the wake of an American Revolution.
