War of Independence (single play)

War of Independence (single play). Three against three – surely that’s fair! But maybe not when one of your side defects to the other! On the English side – a king, a prime minister and a general –  more than a match you’d have thought for a journalist, a Patriot and …oh but wait – Washington was a general and a president – so maybe that evens out the odds a bit! Read on to see which side wins in this re-run of the War of Independence!

Sample Text


King George III

Prime Minister George Grenville

General Charles Cornwallis

George Washington (general and president)

Samuel Adams (Patriots leader)

Thomas Paine (English journalist – emigrated to US)


Adams:            Patriotism! ‘Tis a wonderful thing!

George III:      If, that is, you understand what it means! Somebody, not a million miles from here, seemed to have great difficulty deciding which country he belonged to!

Washington:    The shame of it! Surely no-one could have been uncertain as to what side they were on in our great War of Independence!

Cornwallis:      We had no such traitors in my army!

Grenville:        So who was this Judas?

Paine:              I think he means me!

George III:      Yes, you! Paine by name and pain by nature! If only you’d stayed in your homeland and stayed loyal to England!
