Huge on humor and heart, this original play from Madison’s TAPIT/new works Ensemble Theater, also has serious messages about inclusion in schools, and relating across differences, just in time for the post-election season.

The play chronicles the action that ensues when Ben Franklin and Baron von Steuben realize what's happening in the Paine County School District, where a history teacher’s revelation about von Steuben leads to controversy.   Danielle Dresden’s script transforms controversy to comedy as Franklin and von Steuben risk an intervention in contemporary affairs to correct the record.
