My Dear Mrs. Lincoln

My Dear Mrs. Lincoln

Bob Gleason and Pat Jordan

My Dear Mrs. Lincoln is a glowing exploration into the life of American’s most provocative First Lady, Mary Todd Lincoln, and her relationship with President Abraham Lincoln during the 1860s. This play moves beyond Mary’s traditional role as First Lady and confronts the audience with an intimate view of the First Couple’s trials and tribulations as they look back over the events of their tenure in the White House. Spend an evening with the Lincolns and feel the deep suffering in the hearts of both husband and wife, as they deal with Mary’s depression over the death of their two children, and observe the erratic way she copes. Appreciate Abe’s classic humor as he attempts to stem the tide of war and mitigate the constant strain on his family and his marriage.
