April 29 & 30
Sept. 23 & 24
Performances 6-8:00 p.m.
Step back in time to re-live this story of bittersweet daring and historical mystery, involving one of the most divisive issues of our country’s early history, slavery. It reveals hidden parts of our local history, affirms our faith in our legal system, raises questions about our moral bearing and actions, and reflects how we remember or mythologize our heroes.
Additional activities have been planned in Lerna, Charleston and Mattoon before the dinner theater in Oakland as part of a county-wide celebration of our connection to Abraham Lincoln.
