Barter Theatre - The Road to Appomattox
The performance captures a couple’s road trip as they retrace the route of General Robert E. Lee's final retreat. "Perhaps the most defining moment during the greatest conflict in our nation’s history does not come from the beginning, but the end,” said Bush (Barter Theatre's Playwright-in-Residence Catherine Bush) “The North and the South were in a relationship (much like a marriage), but it wasn’t going well. Had someone not made a difficult decision, the relationship could have ended, for good.” The Civil War scenes are historically accurate, but the focus is less on the battles, and more about the decisions and feelings of the “Man Inside the Marble,” as Lee is often described. The couple follows Lee’s footsteps as he retreats to Amelia Courthouse and then Appomattox, Va., where he surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant. The couple must also decide what it means for them to surrender. “Taking place at the exact locations, but 150 years apart in time, Bush brilliantly weaves together the story of Beau and Jenny Weeks, a husband and wife marching through their own problems toward an important decision about their future, and the story of General Robert E. Lee, as he faces perhaps the most important decision of his future, his army’s future and future of a nation,” said Richard Rose, Barter’s producing artistic director.
