WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Developed at the Lark Playwriting Center, If Only... is a new four-character play by Thomas Klingenstein exploring a love and racial equality that might have been. In 1860, Abraham Lincoln visited New York City, where he befriended a well-educated ex-slave and a young, spirited woman ensconced in New York society. Later, in the middle of the American Civil War, Lincoln brought the two of them together. A romantic relationship ensued, though neither party could acknowledge it. Now, 36 years later, they meet again.
