An event every week that begins at 2:00pm on , repeating until February 12, 2017


Polly Stevenson’s life changes forever when she welcomes two Americans into her London lodging house: the famous scientist Benjamin Franklin, and his handsome young son, William. Polly falls in love with William at first sight, and frequently fantasizes about William requiting her feelings – but alas, they’re just fantasies. As William immerses himself in London social life, he and his father grow apart, both personally and politically. As tensions escalate between Great Britain and her American colonies, the rift between father and son yawns ever wider, and becomes seemingly irreparable when the American Revolution breaks out. Is reconciliation possible between Britain and America? Or between Benjamin and William? Will Polly ever win William’s affection? These questions and more will be answered when the three of them meet again in William’s London flat after the war…
