Tom Paine’s Bones

“We have it in our power to begin the world over again.”

This project has been a labor of love for Team Paine. Pacific Northwest film actor Marty Beaudet performs Jeffery Smith’s well-received script, former Congressional candidate Marc Koller produces it.

A new play, Tom Paine’s Bones: a cautionary tale from a successful rebel, opens Presidents’ Day weekend.

The author of Common Sense—the first bestseller in English—Paine named the new nation, The United States of America. He made friends with Ben Franklin, a Belgian baroness, and others, yet faced death seven times and survived six (not bad for a writer).

Paine’s life matters now as much as ever. Not just because it was so exciting it could be a movie. Or because he was mercilessly slandered and his name merits clearing. But also because what he stood for and the sacrifices he made remind us that with freedom comes great responsibility.

It’s a story you don’t want to miss, and others need to hear.

February 18th (Sat.) at 7:00 pm, and the 19th (Sun.) and the 20th (Mon.) at 3 pm. Admission is $20 with Q&A to follow.
