    Synopsis: 

    General William Tecumseh Sherman, Uncle Billy to his men, marches 62,000 Union soldiers through lush Georgia countryside. Bearing along both black and white refugees, the march destroys everything in its path, turning home into exile and exile into home. Its epic force forever changes the lives of those caught up in its sweep: a liberated slave, a sheltered daughter of a Southern judge, a pair of Confederate deserters and Uncle Billy himself. The March is a story of momentous upheaval and the limits of courage and love.

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF The March

    The Slog to the Sea, Accompanied by Speeches of Unlikely Eloquence

    Charles Isherwood

    May 7, 2012: CHICAGO — The sound of snoring in the audience preceded the drumbeat of footsteps onstage at a recent performance of “The March,” Frank Galati’s studious but lifeless stage adaptation at the Steppenwold Theater here of the E. L. Doctorow novel about Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman’s victorious sweep through Georgia and the Carolinas during the latter days of the Civil War. The unmistakable wheeze of a sleeping patron is not unheard of at the theater, certainly, but never before have I felt envious of the fellow drifting off to dreamland.
