Event Details

Green-Wood is the final resting place of Irish immigrant and lawyer William Sampson and Judge DeWitt Clinton – the two major players in an 1813 court case that was the first-ever test of religious freedom in America. In partnership with NYU’s Glucksman Ireland House and the New York Irish History Roundtable, Green-Wood will honor this event and its major players on its 200th anniversary.

At the site of DeWitt Clinton and his stunning bronze statue, you’ll see award-winning playwright and NYU graduate student Steve DiUbaldo’s dramatic interpretation of this landmark event – adapted from William Sampson’s published account of the case. Judge DeWitt Clinton will preside as the outdoor performance reveals Sampson’s artful argument for American freedom of religion.

After the reading, both Clinton and William Sampson will be honored as NYU’s Ireland House visits each grave for a wreath-laying ceremony.

$15 for nonmembers. FREE for members of the Green-Wood Historic Fund, Ireland House, and for NYU students and faculty. Ireland House and NYU members, call 718-210-3071 to reserve your free ticket.

Performance will also be shown Friday, April 12th at NYU. For information on that performance, please visit SmartTix.com or call (212) 868-4444.
