Contemporary Theatre of Dallas presents The Road to Appomattox
It's unlikely that General Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate Army, could ever have imagined that his final actions during the Civil War would unfold onstage in dramatic counterpoint to the love struggles of a couple 150 years in the future. But that's precisely what The Road to Appomattox imagines.
This Contemporary Theatre of Dallas production cleverly weaves General Lee's retreat following the Battle of Gettysburg with the modern-day challenges of a couple following his trail. In this entertaining and moving drama, both parties - past and present - face decisions that will forever choose the fate of a general, a marriage and the nation.
