WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
From Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks comes a remarkable story of an African-American man who looks just like Abraham Lincoln and can be shot by would-be John Wilkes Booths for a small fee. When he disappears into the "great hole in history," his wife and son go to find him. Questions of race, family, legacy, and the act of theater itself play out in a surprising and emotionally stunning journey. As a prologue to our production, world premiere short plays, Other American Cousins, named for the play President Lincoln was watching when he was shot, will examine Americans' place in today's world. This surrealist depiction of American history lands in our Third Floor Skinner Studio as our season's final production!
