Last year's show had an ecstatic SOLD OUT crowd on their feet- Don't wait too long and miss them this year!

"The Rape of Lucrece" by William Shakespeare, adapted by Dan Hodge at the Peterborough Players

4:00 PM - Peterborough

The Rape of Lucrece - by William Shakespeare, adapted by Dan Hodge In the dark of night, a violent crime is committed — and nothing will ever be the same. Dan Hodge, the first of Peterborough’s Whitmore award winners, returns to the Players to perform his own one-man interpretation of Shakespeare’s epic poem. “The performance...is the sort of bravura, visceral acting that makes you want to grab the lapels of friends who care about theater and shout Hodges’ praises until they agree to see it. It’s that good — among the best I’ve seen all year.” – Steve Barnes, Albany Times Union Rated PG-13 September 9 - September 13 7:30 PM Wednesday, and Thursday Evenings 8:00 PM Friday and Saturday Evenings 4:00 PM Sunday Afternoons www.playerstix.com

African American Soldiers and Sailors of New Hampshire During the American Revolution

7:00 PM - Exeter

One of the most interesting aspects of the American Revolution is the role played by African Americans in the fight for independence. Both free Blacks and those that were enslaved were key elements in manning state militias and Continental Army units, as well as serving on the high seas in the Navy and on privately armed ships. Indeed, their service to New Hampshire, as well as the other New England colonies, was crucial in a conflict that lasted nearly seven years. Prohibited by existing laws from serving in military units and largely considered "undesirable elements" by southern patriots and even many in New England, how is it that these Black soldiers came to fight for the cause of liberty, even when their own personal liberty was not guaranteed? Glenn Knoblock examines the history of Black soldiers' service during the war, including how and why they enlisted, their interaction with white soldiers, service on the battlefields, how they were perceived by the enemy and the officers under whom they served, and their treatment after the war.This event is free and open to the public through a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
