It is May 2, 1775 and 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 tries to create a plan to 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, you will help Rachel, as she carefully considers the dangers and demands of each plan. Find out if Rachel is successful in her perilous mission to unite her family, amidst the wake of an American Revolution.

Presented by Judith Kalaora of History At Play, LLC, this special presentation, originally commissioned for the Paul Revere House, includes a first-person interactive performance followed by an educational Powerpoint, illustrating the geography and political climate of Revolutionary Boston. Founding Mothers also have exciting stories to tell; hear Rachel's for new insight into one of the forgotten players of April 19, 1775! 15 members/ 20 nonmembers.
