Animating the James & Ann Whitall House at Red Bank Battlefield​​

​​Animating the James & Ann Whitall House at Red Bank Battlefield, written and directed by Joe Salvatore, is an interactive, site-specific theatre piece that takes place on a Quaker homestead and a Revolutionary War battlefield, site of the Battle of Red Bank on October 22, 1777. The Gloucester County Cultural & Heritage Commission at RCGC and various community stakeholders sought to engage audiences of all ages through an exploration of the day-to-day lives of 18th century inhabitants of the homestead, the fort, and the surrounding community.  

The commissioned theatre piece premiered in June 2015, after a three-year applied theatre project that included meetings with educators and community members, public readings of the script in process, and extensive workshopping of the mechanics of the site-specific performance.​
