Frontline (2014) Women of a Forgotten War
Premieres October 4
at the Bowie Center for the Performing Arts. Made possible through the generous funding of Maryland Milestones / Anacostia Trails Heritage Area.
Frontline: Women of a Forgotten War tells the story of women from different walks of life who are living in Maryland or Washington, D.C. during the War of 1812. Through a fusion of dance, music, and narration, Frontline explores the burdens shouldered and the opportunities seized by women as our young nation sent its husbands, fathers and sons into war once again.
The program will also feature live music performed Bedlam, which specializes in American Colonial vocal and instrumental music, and a reprise of Wayles Haynes’ Dependent.
