Cape Cod Theatre Project: “How to Load a Musket”
July 21, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$25
“How to Load a Musket” by Talene Monahon will be performed at Falmouth Academy’s Simon Center for the Arts.
“Every year, historical reenactors congregate to recreate the epic battles of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. These men and women wear handmade period clothing, chew on hard-tack, and fire muskets and cannons to spectacular effect. But who are these reenactors? Monahon has conducted dozens of interviews, uncovering the stories of these individuals across the country. Using their actual words, Musket explores the patriotism, love of history, and extraordinary opportunity for escapism that fuels these anachronistic lifestyles.” -Cape Cod Theatre Company
