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

Burien Actors Theatre Logo

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.
