New Theatre presents Lincolnesque

From Sep 7th through Oct 1st, 2006New Theatre in Coral Gables brings to the stage the Florida premiere of Lincolnesque, the new play by John Strand. Lincolnesque is a funny play about brotherhood, loyalty and the corruption of politics in America. It refers to two brothers; Leo, a Capitol Hill speechwriter struggling to stay employed, and Francis, a psychiatric outpatient convinced that he is the reincarnation of the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Leo’s employer, a stunningly mediocre congressman, looks headed for defeat in his re-election bid. But when Francis secretly takes over the speechwriting, the congressman starts sounding heroic, even inspiring. Could it be a renaissance in American politics?… A seriously comic look at love and strategy in a city so desperately sane that madness may be the remedy.
