This unique scenic reading, commissioned in honor of Frederick II's 300th birthday, follows the pen-pal friendship between great thinkers Voltaire and Frederick II that spanned almost half a century. The play is made up of selected letter exchanges between the great French-European philosopher and the Royal Prince (and later King) of Prussia, beginning when the latter was a mere 24 years old (and the former 42) and ending with the eulogy Frederick II wrote in memoriam of Voltaire's death 1778. Their intensive correspondence is surprisingly modern and rings true in today's politicized times. This performance features American Repertory Theater founding member Thomas Derrah as Voltaire and Actors Shakespeare Project founding member John Kuntz as Frederick II.
