Brother to Dragons

In 1811, the nephews of American President and Founding Father, Thomas Jefferson, savagely murdered a slave. Based on Robert Penn Warren's poetic drama, "Brother to Dragons" offers a fictional account of what led to the murder. While focusing primarily on the perpetrators, the edgy drama also contemplates Jefferson's silence on the crime.
