Secret Soldiers: Civil War Heroines in Disguise
A conflict arises in a Civil War hospital when a nurse discovers that injured Private Lyons Wakeman is actually Sarah Wakeman, a woman. Should the hospital registry be changed creating proof that women can fight in battle? Or should it stay intact so Sarah can receive her earned pension and her family avoid shame? The play is based on more than 250 military accounts of women who fought as Union soldiers. The audience votes at each performance on how the show should end.
