Description: GWO brings you a unique event - a dramatic reading of selected letters of American history's first "power couple". John and Abigail Adams both went through times of quarantine during the 18th century small pox epidemic - he shortly before their marriage, and she along with her 4 small children while her husband was helping birth the new country in Philadelphia. As expressed in their letters, they felt the pangs of isolation, fear, uncertainty and separation, much like the ones we've all been facing in the past months. Dramatically read by Todd Yard and Elaine Crane. Livestreamed from Facebook - link available on our website on the "Events" page. (You do not need a Facebook account to watch - everyone is welcome!)
