Sheridan College Theatre and Dance present
April 9 – 11, 2021
Sheridan College Theatre and Dance presents the play Amelia by Alex Webb. Part history play, part love story, Amelia is a heroic Civil War tale about one woman’s search for her husband across the battlefields of America. Alex Webb wrote the play after reading a reference to a woman who broke into Andersonville Prison Camp in a Civil War diary, “It is a little-known historical fact that there were 400-500 women that masqueraded as men and fought in the Civil War,” says Webb. “My play is not a celebration of the legendary generals that are so often at the center of this history. This is the Civil War from the perspective of a woman — from the perspective of the common people.” This play explores the enduring nature of love, the cost of war and the courage one can find in extraordinary circumstances.
