Ben Butler

What You'll Get

Richard Strand’s Ben Butler, a smart and funny discourse on race, protocol and our sense of humanity, garnered high critical acclaim during its Off-Broadway run in 2016. The sharply comic play takes place in the middle of the Civil War, 1861, at Virginia’s Union-held Fort Monroe under the command of General Benjamin Butler. When three escaped slaves show up seeking sanctuary, General Butler is faced with an impossible moral dilemma – follow the letter of the law and return the escapees back to the Confederacy, or make a game-changing move that could alter the course of US history? The bold and bright refugee, Shepard Mallory demands an audience with General Butler and what ensues is a battle of wits between two equally formidable men at the edge of a country ripped in half. One of Abraham Lincoln’s top generals, Benjamin Butler, a lawyer, championed the causes of labor, abolition of slavery, and naturalized citizens. After retiring from the battlefield, Butler was a settler of Gloucester’s Bayview neighborhood (present-day Ames Estate still inhabited by Butler’s descendants), a presidential candidate, and the 33rd Governor of Massachusetts. Joseph Discher, who helmed the show’s world premiere production in 2014 and the Off-Broadway production in 2016, makes his GSC directing debut with Richard Strand’s Ben Butler.
