Audiences take in Liberty To Go To See, 2015, at Cliveden’s Main House, an interactive dramatic event based on the Chew Family Papers, produced by the New Freedom Theatre and featuring a script created through a year-long partnership between Cliveden and the Philadelphia Young Playwrights.

Cliveden and Automatic Arts present Home Entertainment, an evening of theater, dance, and multimedia performances inspired by the Center-funded project Cliveden's Living Kitchens. Performers include Pew Fellow and Philadelphia Poet Laureate Yolanda Wisher, Putty Dance Project, and live music by Chickabiddy.

Pre-show begins at 7:00 p.m.; performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Admission includes refreshments.

Through Cliveden's Living Kitchens, Cliveden of the National Trust undertakes a historical interpretation project that compares domestic life in two centuries through the exploration of the 1767 and 1959 kitchens inside Cliveden's historic Germantown mansion, revealing how architecture, design, and the technology of the times defined the experiences of those enslaved and in service and their relationships with the household's family.
