April 2 - April 24 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join Bartow-Pell’s Museum Educators as they lead you on a themed, guided tour highlighting the Civil War era.
The tour is then followed by a new short play entitled Thread written by Sharon Latimer-Mosley. It addresses topics and themes that are as relevant today as they were during the 19th century.
Thread written by Sharon Latimer-Mosley, directed by Amelia Huckel-Bauer.
In the wake of the Civil War Draft Riots that shook New York City in 1863, Bartow-Pell mansion is the site of a long-delayed reunion between two African-American New Yorkers: a self-made dress-maker and a Navy recruiter who face crucial choices about the future they pursue – and whether it will be shared.
