FFP veteran J.R. Smith takes on the persona of the “founding father who winks at us” in this one-man play about Benjamin Franklin. You will get to know “the sage” through his own writings as you visit him one stormy evening at his home in Philadelphia. Who knows? Maybe he’ll even show you “how to draw electric fire from the clouds” and talk about how we may all break wind a little more elegantly and pleasantly.
