In this engaging one-man performance, professional actor Bill Meikle brings Franklin alive to chat with contemporary audiences about the people and events of his life.

The evening will be completely interactive as Meikle's "frankling" elicits questions and gently challenges the audience. As one reviewer said, "It's magic to watch Bill Meikle put on a pair of glasses and turn into Benjamin Franklin." Bill Meikle has been performing Franklin for 24 years to schools, colleges, corporations, conventions, and theaters throughout New England. He has portrayed Franklin twice on public television and for this work has won two Emmy awards.
