Should we be governed by our heads or our hearts? Reason is prevailing. In our time, we must ask ourselves, what is the balance between what we feel and what we know.
In his will, George Washington included an order to free his enslaved people upon his wife’s death. Christmas Eve, 1800: George Washington is dead, Martha is battling a wicked fever, and those who have been held in bondage at Mount Vernon wait for the end to come, and the promised hour of liberation. As the night goes on, Martha moves through a fever dream of dizzying theatricality, exploring the hideous and enduring ramifications of America’s original sin. Taylor Reynolds directs.
