This quirky comedy, set in Washington, D.C., in 1865, revolves around the British-born stage actress Laura Keene whose wacky
company is performing at Ford’s Theatre the night Abraham Lincoln is shot by John Wilkes Booth. Even though this sounds
sad, the backstage mishaps take focus over the national tragedy, giving the old theatre maxim, “The show must go on!,” a truly
different dimension. Just picture the Civil War meets Waiting for Guffman!
