One fall night in 1776, Ben Franklin, John Adams and Edward Rutledge idle away the hours in an overcrowded tavern the night before initiating peace negotiations with a British Admiral. The tavern owner finds himself playing host to the aspiring founding fathers, who offer levity and humor while confronting the potential of a failing revolution. The absurdity of the lodging situation, which lands Adams in bed together with Franklin (a known nude air bather), and the anxieties of their current political and personal failures lead audiences from laughter to tears.
