Gunston Arts Center
2700 S. Lang Street Arlington

Avant Bard Theatre presents Billy and George, a World Premiere which takes place on December 25, 1776, just hours before General George Washington and the Continental Army cross the Delaware River to defeat the Hessian soldiers at Trenton, New Jersey. Washington and his closest companion, the enslaved person William “Billy” Lee, prepare for the crossing while discussing, arguing, and challenging the concepts of freedom, war, and love. Theatergoers will be given a nuanced portrait of the nation’s first president and his unexpected confidante who influenced Washington’s perspective on peace, freedom, and independence.
