Product Description
Readers theater play which takes place on July 4, 1776 in Philadelphia where delegates are meeting to debate the Declaration of Independence. One delegate accuses John Adams and Thomas Jefferson of spreading a HOAX! Is this whole battle for independence based on FAKE NEWS? Was the story of the Boston Tea Party invented to trick us into hating King George? Will the true patriots succeed here, or will the cowards who want to remain under England's control win the debate?
