About Ben Butler

When an escaped slave shows up at Fort Monroe demanding sanctuary during the Civil War, Union General Benjamin Butler is faced with an impossible moral dilemma – follow the letter of the law, or make a game-changing move that could alter the course of US history? Benjamin Butler, a lawyer and former Governor of Massachusetts who championed the causes of labor and of naturalized citizens, spent his summers in the Bayview neighborhood of Gloucester (present-day Ames Estate). Joseph Discher who helmed the show’s world premiere production in 2014 and the Off Broadway production in 2016, makes his GSC directing debut.
