By Lola H. and Coleman A. Jennings. Adapted from the book by Esther Forbes.
Cast: 13m., 2w. In a story filled with danger and courage, Johnny, a young apprentice silversmith, is caught up in a dramatic involvement with John Hancock, Samuel Adams, Paul Revere and Dr. Joseph Warren in the stirring events that lead to the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Lexington. The play recreates Forbes' brilliant historical fiction for young people, portraying the turbulent times of Revolutionary Boston as a living drama through the like of a boy who, without family, must make his own way and find the courage of his own convictions; a young man who will never let us forget that we all must be prepared to fight "so that a man can stand up." Unit set.
