The Most Lamentable Tragedie of the Brothers Booth (historical drama)

 

Less than 5 months before the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, three world-famous brothers (Junius, Edwin, and John Wilkes) performed on the same stage for the first and only time in their lives. The performance was a benefit to raise money for a statue of William Shakespeare that still stands in NYC's Central Park today. The play they performed for their adoring audience? Julius Caesar – Shakespeare’s tale of the assassination of a world leader.

 

The Most Lamentable Tragedie of the Brothers Booth is an imagining of conversations over the weekend of November 25th, 1864 as the brothers discuss their personal histories, their relationship to their renowned father, explore the limits of brotherhood, and live through a nearly forgotten Confederate attack on NYC.
