Silas Deane – Not Just A Highway is a comedy about accused spy Silas Deane of Connecticut. George Hosker-Bouley, who plays Deane as part of the Portsmouth Underbelly Tour,  his now taken this story to the stage. Deane, along with Benjamin Franklin and aide Edward Bancroft were instrumental in creating the Treaty of Alliance, which allowed France to help out America in its war for Independence. This new comedy however is far more than a history lesson. 

Silas Deane is told in vaudeville style.  The play centers around Deane’s apparent murder through the eyes of a bumbling Franklin, a boozy Betsy Ross, a stuck-up Bancroft and a King George who would look more at home on top of a wedding cake than the throne of England. 

The comedy features Norm Smith, Meg Oolders, Anne Rehner, Richard DiMario, Ken Stiles and George Hosker-Bouley.
