The Lincolns' Personal Lives Explored in New Drama
A House Divided focuses on the personal side of the Lincolns, set against the backdrop of the Civil War. Using a mix of original music true to the period, as well as songs from the era, the show faithfully portrays critical moments in the Lincolns' lives. Using Abraham Lincoln's own words including his greatest speeches, while also drawing on his less well-known intimate and humorous sides, the play presents a personal and poignant portrait of the Lincolns and those closest to them. From the family's departure for Washington from their beloved Springfield, to the moment of assassination, A House Divided explores the intense personal and psychological struggles Mary and Abraham Lincoln faced against the backdrop of war and politics. This fully staged world premiere by Philadelphia's Narberth Community Theater represents the culmination of several years of development under the auspices of the New Musical Theater Exchange in Minneapolis.
