(I'm playing Abraham Lincoln)

A play about social media. Set in the 1850’s. Any brilliant young woman in 1853 with ambitions to change the world would be scorned. But Mabel Prescott finds such an opportunity in a unique venture—a printing-press version of Facebook—led by failed Congressman Abraham Lincoln. Join us for an historical what-if which will determine the fate of Mabel’s career, Lincoln’s future, and the imperiled union of the United States.

Pay-What-You-Choose Reading. Talkback with playwright to follow.
