The Democracy Project is a 45-minute play produced for and about Federal Hall National Memorial, incubated by the Federal Hall Conservancy and Lynn Goldner, in partnership with the National Park Service.

The Democracy Project is a journey through the first of the 527 momentous days when New York City was the first capital of the revolutionary United States government. The presidency was new, the slave trade was in debate, and the Constitution—and the rights of all this land’s inhabitants—hung in the balance.

George Washington struggles to define his presidency; James Madison presents the Bill of Rights; Muscogee (Creek) Chief Alexander McGillivray maneuvers to preserve his nation’s land by signing the first international treaty with the United States; and Ona Judge, a woman enslaved by Martha Washington, sees through the Quaker petitions to end the slave trade.

Featuring original songs, The Democracy Project follows a modern-day narrator through the history of Federal Hall on Wall Street, probing the choices of our Founders and how their actions still reverberate through America, many years after “We the People.”

Directed by Tamilla Woodard (Weightless; Chair, Acting Program, Yale’s David Geffen School of Drama) and Tai Thompson (Dark Star from Harlem).

The Democracy Project is written by WGA Award winner Tanya Barfield (Hulu’s “Mrs. America”); Pulitzer Prize finalist Lisa D’Amour (Detroit); MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Larissa FastHorse (The Thanksgiving Play); Obie Award winner Melissa James Gibson (“House of Cards”); Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Michael R. Jackson (A Strange Loop); and Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park).

The cast of The Democracy Project includes Erin Anderson (Sleep No More), Renata Eastlick (for colored girls…), Jake Hart (Jesus Hopped The A Train), Nathan Hinton (Where The Mountain Meets the Sea), Tom Nelis (Girl From the North Country), Joel Van Liew (Women in Jeopardy), and Tatiana Williams (Confederates).

The Democracy Project features scenic and costume design by Deb O, lighting design by Lucrecia Briceno, and sound design by Mark Van Hare.

The production team includes Production Stage Manager E. Sara Barnes; Assistant Stage Manager Julie Gottfried; Music Direction by Sean Cameron; Casting by Calleri Jensen Davis; Associate General Manager Greg Kamp; and General Manager Joey Monda. Adam Greenfield (Artistic Director, Playwrights Horizons) is the script consultant.

Commissioned by the Federal Hall Conservancy, The Democracy Project is presented at Federal Hall National Memorial as part of its New Day at Federal Hall initiative, which will launch for the nation’s 250th birthday on July 4, 2026, in partnership with the National Park Service. The Conservancy, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, is bringing together the nation’s finest storytellers and scholars, writers and artists, poets, playwrights, and pundits to probe the ideas and ideals, flaws and contradictions of our democracy, a Constitutional experiment, which began at Federal Hall in 1789.

Major support for The Democracy Project was provided by the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, with generous support from the New York State Council on the Arts, Jockey Hollow Foundation, Rob Beyer and Loren Pack, Robyn and Anthony O’Carroll, Judith O. Rubin, and Louise Hirschfeld Cullman.
