In the play, Hellesen explores the two documented encounters between Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln during the summers of 1863 and 1864, as Douglass challenges the president to envision a post-emancipation world.
Hellesen's previous works for Ford's Theatre include One Destiny, Investigation: Detective McDevitt, and The Road from Appomattox.
