“Thrilling comic drama… vibrates with the clamor of big ideas, audaciously and exuberantly expressed… a deeply theatrical experience” – The New York Times
Lincoln and Booth are brothers trapped, ensnared in a dangerous sparring match fueled by their poverty, race, family history and, prophetically, their very given names.
