Venue: Second Stage at The Adrienne Theatre


A forgotten Founding Father, a black Union soldier, and a modern-day campus trapped between precedent and progress. How does the telling of our history change it – or change us? A triptych set in the crucible of the American South, Effigy explores our fractured legacy of riot, race, and revolution.Playwright Laura Anthony’s natural, overlapping dialogue shifts seamlessly through the stories of an overlooked revolutionary, a wounded Union soldier, and a university classroom overshadowed by the American legacy of racism. With an ensemble of seven actors, Anthony offers audiences an intimate window into these three indelibly linked moments in time.

Following its sold-out NYC premiere, Effigy returns to the place it was first conceived: Philadelphia, the heart of the American Revolution.

Effigy has an approximate run time of 150 minutes, and there will be a 15-minute intermission. Please be advised, this play contains scenes of violence, explicit language, sexual situations, and use of racial slurs. The production contains strobe lighting effects and gunshots.
