COMING TO DUXBURY THE SUMMER OF 2022
How can a poor, illiterate adventurer win the heart of a privileged Pilgrim maiden?
How can love even happen in the midst of a harrowing journey across a vast ocean--with no end in sight?
The answer is YOUNG PILGRIMS, the play. This summer, come see a new romantic comedy about the Mayflower voyage--based on hysterical events.
You think you know the Pilgrims? Discover the people behind the story you thought you knew. You’ll see the Pilgrims as serious and funny, smart and stupid, fearful and brave, and unlike Thanksgiving icons, as real human beings.
Best of all, you’ll find out how our adventurer succeeds in beating the odds!
COME SEE YOUNG PILGRIMS! Your whole family will laugh and cry, but mostly laugh, in this 90-minute perfect Plymouth experience.
YOUNG PILGRIMS premiered in New York City at the Rave Theater Festival, August 2019. The show was acclaimed by the New York Times:
Sarah Morse, Director of the New York Mayflower Society
"Everyone we spoke to loved the play--me included. Amazing how enthralled I was...couldn't take my eyes off the actors (who were brilliant). Such a good job capturing the story of young people on the Mayflower--what they thought and what they went through. Bravo!"
V. Gottlieb, Member of the New York Mayflower Society
"So proud to have seen this with my 14-year-old daughter, who thought it would be boring but loved it!"
B. Fields, New York
"One of the funniest plays I've seen in years. And very apropos for today's times."
Young Pilgrims opens on June 24, 2022, at the Theater in
the historic First Parish Church of Duxbury (15 minutes from Plymouth). It will run until Labor Day.
The play will run Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 7:30, with Sunday matinees at 2 pm.
Tickets will be $25 general admission, and $20 for seniors. We’d like to make it free, but we have to feed the actors.
