‘Jefferson’s Garden’ for radio broadcast and online download
Jefferson’s Garden — Gregory Harrison stars as Thomas Jefferson in a gripping, powerful and timely play by internationally acclaimed playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker (Our Country’s Good) that brings a fresh slant and theatrical inventiveness to the story of the American Revolution. Martin Jarvis, OBE directs five performances of Wertenbaker’s stirring, action-packed tale about the elusive nature of freedom that was a smash hit at England’s Watford Palace Theatre. Each of the five performances at UCLA’s state-of-the-art James Bridges Theater will be recorded live in front of an audience for future radio broadcast, distribution on CD, digital download and online streaming.
