Audience members are apart in what some would say was the beginning of the War of 1812.
The setting is Moody’s Tavern in December 1811 and all the locals are celebrating Christmas until a shot rings out and quickly quiets the Christmas spirit.
The British and Americans were taking pot shots at each other before the war started along the shores of Lake Erie. This was one of those events.
The Dominion Repertory Theatre Presents, Lion and The Eagle, an original play which is loosely based on real people, places, and events surrounding the War of 1812.
The production is interactive and the cast works its way through the crowd throughout the presentation.
The performances are being held at Old Fort Erie’s New Welcome Centre.
