American Primitive is a play by William Gibson about the lives of John and Abigail Adams. Gibson used the correspondence of John and Abigail Adams to create a verse drama about the period of the American Revolution. American Primitive debuted (unsuccessfully) at the Berkshire Theatre Festival in 1969 in a production directed by Frank Langella and featuring Anne Bancroft as Abigail Adams.[1]
