Chapel in the Pines Sunday Program for June 12, 2022 via Zoom only
No Surrender takes place after the statue of Robert E. Lee is removed from its pedestal, when the displaced General stumbles into a homeless encampment and gives a history lesson. The play was filmed last year, when live performances were rare, and features actors are John Shuman, John Dennis Anderson, and Patrick Riviere. No Surrender was originally shown as part of a three-play collection, “Racial Reckonings,” produced by the Wellfleet Preservation Hall and made possible with grants from the Wellfleet Cultural Council and the Joan Patchen Fund of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom. Playwright Candace Perry will introduce the play and lead a discussion following the screening. All are welcome.
