Cuesheet 2012-2013 Season

The (Mostly True) Adventures of Homer P. Figg

World Premiere Kennedy Center Commission

The (Mostly True) Adventures of Homer P. FiggDuring the Civil War, a small twelve-year-old boy who never even owned a pair of shoes saves his older brother at the Battle of Gettysburg and then helps lead the Union to victory! Sounds hard to believe, but it’s true. At least mostly true. You see, Homer P. Figg doesn’t always tell the whole truth about, well, anything. But from Maine to Pennsylvania, facing Union soldiers and Confederates, Underground Railroad workers to circus ring leaders, Homer will tell any tale to save his brother. A first-person narration in the voice of Homer himself will be adapted to the stage from Rodman Philbrick’s humorous and spritely children’s novella.
