NAACP Evening of Theater

All NAACP members and friends are invited to a 5pm reception with the Peterborough Players, then to attend their hilarious and dramatic play Ben Butler at 7pm, August 10, 2024.

Supporters of the NAACP from across the state of New Hampshire will gather on August 20 to enjoy each other's company. Then the Peterborough Players will entertain and educate us with this acclaimed play:

“I heard a good lawyer can always use convoluted reasoning to find a loophole.”

When an escaped slave shows up at Fort Monroe demanding sanctuary during the Civil War, the newly appointed commandant, Major General Benjamin Butler is faced with an impossible moral dilemma—follow the letter of the law or make a game-changing move that could alter the course of U.S. history? 

​“Part comedy, part historical drama …Just call it splendid… It’s a funny and impressive mixture.” —The New York Times

Buy your tickets now for August 20, 2024 for Ben Butler.

Arrive at 5:00 pm to join the reception.

Curtain rises on the performance at 7:00 pm.
