Meeting Room ABC

This charming reenactment, produced by the American Historical Theatre, follows the Adams throughout the struggle for American Independence.

The Adamses recount their long but necessary separations while John was away on Government business, as well as Abigail’s resourcefulness in keeping the family economy in good stead while seeing to the education of the children. 

Their discussion evokes images of the early years of the American Government and looks back on their experiences in the first three Capital cities, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington. Both speak freely about their observations and opinions on the momentous events that brought Thirteen Colonies from Revolution over one government, through two successful transitions of Executive Elections, to an enduring Nation. Through all the years of turmoil, long separations, and Revolution, each remained to the other "My Dearest Friend."

Performed by Peyton Dixon as John Adams and Kim Hanley as Abigail Adams.
