When two hard core Civil War re-enactors show up for their annual Gettysburg beer and find a pretty stranger at their table, old allegiances come into question. Straddling 1863 and today, Row After Row is a dark comedy about choosing your cause and finding your courage.
Row After Row is set in a rural Pennsylvania tavern just after a proud reenactment of Pickett's Charge on the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg and examines whether union among any people is possible. The play's title comes from Pickett's Charge: after Confederate Maj. Gen. George Pickett gave his order to charge the Union line on Cemetery Ridge, men rushed forward and, as the defenders' guns fired, row after row of Confederate soldiers fell to the ground, dead.
