Washington's Birthnight


CW Admission Required

In 1779, James Innes, an alumnus of William and Mary and newly appointed Commissioner of the Virginia Navy, decided to organize a celebration for George Washington’s birthday in front of the Raleigh Tavern. After being denied permission by both Governor Patrick Henry and members of the House of Burgesses, Innes took matters into his own hands. Through comedy and song, audiences become a part of his struggle to fight for his right to party. Approximately 20 minutes.
