Who was Napoleon before he became an Emperor? Find out in this hilarious, intimate comedy by George Bernard Shaw. Join us in a historic 18th-century tavern setting for an evening of raucous, witty fun and watch the ultimate battle of the sexes. Will Napoleon be defeated before he even embarks on his career of conquest? Framed with a new translation of the sultry letters of Napoleon to Josephine, and served up with a liberal side of romance, this is the perfect Valentine’s gift for your special someone.
The Man of Destiny was a co-production between The Archive Theater and Pioneer Farms that took place in February 2020. The play ran February 6 - 29, 2020 on Thursdays through Sat at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 5:00 pm in Wessels Hall at Pioneer Farms. There was a special Industry Night on Wed Feb 26th. We also had a special Educational Performance Thursday Feb 20th at 11:00 am.
The Doors of our tavern opened 30 minutes before the show with games, refreshments and live music entertainment. We welcomed patrons who came in 19th century costume to increase the interactive experience.
