Impossible But True
The show is written to be performed immersively in a tavern, with 9 actors and a piano player. This is a tale of how the American Revolution affects a small village in the Catskills, loosely based on the story of Rip Van Winkle, it is a show about believing (or not believing) in possibility. It follows Rip--an idle storyteller and dreamer--as he goes off to fight in the Revolutionary War and then cannot find his way home. When he finally makes it back, he finds a town transformed by the experience of the American revolution.
