Valin Posted July 30, 2014 Share Posted July 30, 2014 Shot In the Dark: Mitch Berg July 30 2014 Act 1 [SCENE: The New Jersey-side bank of the Delaware River, December 24, 1776. General George WASHINGTON, having just led the ragged Continental Army across the Delaware River, is having a final conference with his senior officers before attacking the Hessians, who are passed out, hung over after their Christmas drinking binges, in their winter camp in Trenton New Jersey.] WASHINGTON: Our revolution has had major setbacks this past year. Now is our time to strike back, re-set the balance of this war, and convince the French, Dutch and Spanish that the Revolution can be sustained! [The generals cheer - except for A. LIBRELLE, a civilian bureaucrat attached to the Army by the group Justice For Britain]. LIBRELLE: I’m sorry, General. This attack is disproportionate. Your men need to get drunk,, become hung over, and then wake the Hessians so it can be a fair fight. And lose the cannon. General Marquis de LAFAYETTE: Sacre bleu, is this person mad?
