Review of "Ben Butler" at BAT

There are many stories that have come out of the civil war. Some detail the struggles the union and confederate soldiers endured, while others are about the oppression the slaves suffered through. Few, however, illustrate the strained relationship of union soldiers and the slaves which they fought for.

Ben Butler is a very unique civil war story that is so incredible, it’s hard to believe it is based on a true story. It takes place a few weeks after the start of the American civil war, shortly after the state of Virginia seceded from the Union.

Historical drama meets comedy in thought-provoking Ben Butler at Burien Actors Theatre

Based upon historical events, the comedy-drama Ben Butler at Burien Actors Theatre is a unique look at a key decision in the Civil War. Performances of this Northwest premiere, written by Richard Strand, run Sept. 29 through Oct. 22.

Two quick-witted men, one black and one white, and their innate stubborness radically change the course of history and the purpose of the North’s cause in the U.S. Civil War. Ben Butler is based upon historical events.
