About the Show
“The Trial of Mrs. Surratt,” a new play with music, is an exploration of the lives of those infamously dubbed as the “Lincoln Conspirators.”
This play challenges audiences to examine this tale of American history from the perspective of its most misunderstood historical figures. Based on actual dinner table conversations, federal trials, and journal entries, the piece explores 1865 post-Civil War America in a way most have never imagined. All songs within the play are historic Civil War battle hymns.
