About The American Tradition

Set in Antebellum America with an absurd and Brechtian twist, fictitious characters Eleanor--cross-dressing as a white planter--and her husband, Bill--pretending to be her loyal servant--attempt to escape to the free state of Pennsylvania. Their operation is running smoothly until they meet Walsh, a drunk planter and member of the Not All Slavers organization, who steals Bill at a rest stop. Armed with a Glock-19 and her fair skin, Eleanor sets out to rescue him by any means necessary.
