The Most Spectacularly Lamentable Trial of Miz Martha Washington

March 8-31, 2024

Written by Pulitzer Prize Winner, James Ijames
Directed by Pirronne Yousefzadeh
Alan Page Auditorium | Mixed Blood Theatre

Ravaged by illness and cared for by the very slaves that will be free the moment she dies, Martha Washington’s fever dreams are haunted by a range of characters, from Queen Charlotte and George Washington, to a present-day trial lawyer, building up to a reckoning with family, legacy, and broken promises. Written by Pulitzer winner James Ijames, this biting satire examines history’s impact on present-day systems.
