I explore the story of Susanna Cox through a multi-faceted prism of the turbulent times when America comes into its own and attempts to understand, explain and exonerate itself as a new-born nation with new ideals, new geography, new literature, new ethics, and new heroes. Susanna’s hanging creates a vortex, whose power draws in every character and makes them confront their dreams of a future and freedom in their brave new world. It is the play about breaking taboos and crossing frontiers, whether sexual, social, or spiritual. There were some small but vital adjustments that I wanted to make to the script following the premiere production at Signature Theatre last year, and I am very grateful to Irina Brown and the students and faculty of UC Davis for providing me with the space and the acting talent to continue to develop my work.

HISTORICAL BACKGROUNDThe United States Declaration of Independence was adopted on July 4, 1776, which declared that the Thirteen Colonies in North America were "Free and Independent States.”

"… our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address, 1863.

Thomas Jefferson (April 13, 1743 – July 4, 1826) was the third President of the United States (1801–1809), the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776), and one of the most influential Founding Fathers for his promotion of the ideals of republicanism in the United States. Major events during his presidency include the Louisiana Purchase (1803) and the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804–1806).

Meriwether Lewis (August 18, 1774–October 11, 1809) was an American explorer, soldier, and public administrator, best known for his role as the leader of the Lewis and Clark Expedition also known as the Corps of Discovery, with William Clark, whose mission was to explore the territory of the Louisiana Purchase.

The Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804-1806) was the first American overland expedition to the Pacific Coast and back.

Daniel Boone (November 2 [O.S. October 22] 1734 – September 26, 1820) was an American pioneer and hunter whose frontier exploits made him one of the first folk heroes of the United States. Boone is most famous for his exploration and settlement of what is now the U.S. state of Kentucky, which was then beyond the western borders of the Thirteen Colonies. In 1784 John Filson published Daniel Boone's "Adventures" on Boone's 50th birthday. The narrative describes in Boone's own words his exploits in the Kentucky wilderness from May 1769 to October 1782. His adventures—real and legendary—were influential in creating the archetypal Western hero of American folklore.

The Mennonites are a group of Christian Anabaptist denominations named after Menno Simons (1496-1561). It is one of the historic peace churches.

Susanna Cox was born in 1785, one of many children to a very poor family in the Oley Valley. An illiterate girl, described by many as a friendly, kind, simpleton, she was “bound out” to a neighboring family for her room and board. On the morning of June 10, 1809 before a mournful crowd of over 20,000 Susanna was hanged for murdering her new-born child.
