Lincoln for the Stages

$23.95










Americans had a golden opportunity to honor the memory of Abraham Lincoln and to recommit themselves to the principles in which he stood for. 2009 marked the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth.

The collection of plays assembled in this book have been ten years in the making. All four plays are organized in sequential order, starting with Lincoln's birth and culminating in the tragedy of his assassination. They are age-appropriate for middle school, high school and community drama organizations.

The book is unique in the fact that it is not only a collection plays suitable for a wide variety of productions, but it is educational and informative and can be read as a biography. The book offers photographs and biographies of the real people involved in Lincoln's life. These photographs and biographies are interesting to the reader and useful to the actor portraying a particular character. Complete citations are contained in the endnotes.

Michael E. Bishop, Executive Director, Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission offered his comments after reviewing Lincoln for the Stages; "The theatre was a retreat for Lincoln from the cares of office, and the place where his conscious life came to an end. Lincoln for the Stages is a fitting tribute to its illustrious subject, and an effective tool for those preparing to celebrate Lincoln's bicentennial."

The theater was a retreat for Lincoln from the cares of office, and the place where his conscious life came to an end. Lincoln for the Stages is a fitting tribute to its illustrious subject, and an effective tool for those preparing to celebrate Lincoln's bicentennial.
