Land of the Free

“The world has never had a good definition of the word liberty, and the American people, just now, are much in want of one” Abraham Lincoln

  1. The United States are disunited by politics, power and race. To celebrate the end of Civil War, a victorious Abraham Lincoln goes to the theatre. Not long into the show a man walks in and shoots him. Who was he? Why did he do it? And why does it matter now?

In the lead up to a tumultuous American election this November, the award winning Simple8 examine the present by visiting the past, with a searing new play about John Wilkes Booth, the actor who assassinated a President.
