Additional Info

Bedfellows is a short comedy that peeks in on an awkward moment in U.S. history: a night in 1776 when John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were forced to share a bed in a crowded inn. Adams, cranky and battling a cold, must contend with the free-spirited and ever-knowledgeable Franklin, who can't seem to stop inventing things. From debating the cause of the common cold to enforcing the rules of sharing a tiny bed, Adams tries to endure the challenges of snuggling up with the world's most accomplished man.
