About This Show

The Tony Award-winning Old Globe presents the world-premiere of Lincolnesque, by John Strand, directed by Joe Calarco.
The play shows audiences the intriguing world of Washington election campaigns through the eyes of two brothers: Leo – a speech writer for a struggling congressional candidate; and Francis, an intelligent and passionate individual, who just happens to believe he’s Abraham Lincoln. When Leo begins to use some of Francis’ historical words for inspiration, the level of politics is raised to new heights…but the truth behind Francis’ famous alter ego could be exposed in this touching and funny new play about brotherhood, loyalty and the corruption of politics in America.
