POCAHONTAS, AND/OR AMERICA

Genre:

<i>With over 400 years of history, legend, and pop culture as its sources, Little Lord reconstructs the American myth of Pocahontas in their fifth full-length stage work, <b>Pocahontas, and/or America</b>. Taking up the mantle of the early 19th-century dramatists who invented the American theater, <b>Pocahontas, and/or America</b> recreates our country's origins through the lens of the immortal Indian princess, belle sauvage, Pocahontas. Using contemporary historical accounts, 19th-century melodramas, YMCA Indian guides, archaeological research, and more, Little Lord digs into disputed histories to find out if it's still even possible to make a patriotic piece of theater.</i>

<i>Pocahontas, and/or America</i> features Kaaron Briscoe*, Das Elkin, Joshua William Gelb, Stephanie Hsu (Life and Times), Polly Lee* (Marie Antoinette at Yale Rep/ART), Alan Tyson, Laura von Holt, and Enrico D. Wey* (War Horse, THEM at PS122/Abrons).

Stage Managed by Kaitlin Nemeth, Assistant Stage Manager Richard Drake. Production Manager: Jeremy Pape. www.littlelordpocahontas.com
