Description

Full Length Play

Comedy

This unusual show is partly the play that was being given at Ford's Theatre the night Lincoln was shot and partly the events of that tragic night. At the exact moment Lincoln was shot, the play-within-the-play is interrupted— The play is set in its historical context, starting in 1890 with a garrulous old night watchman who sets the scene, in a second flashback, as it was on April 14, 1865. Act I follows Laura Keene's company at morning rehearsal, preparing for that fateful evening. Act II neatly picks up the play as it was being presented that night, with the cast pausing to bow as the president enters. The night watchman shows how it all happened when the shot sounded and what followed afterwards. Bare stage w/props. Approximate running time: 90 minutes.
