During the Civil War, Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln met twice in the White House. There’s no record of the conversations, but playwright Richard Hellesen has written a play based on the issues that may have led to a lively set of exchanges between the two giants of American history. Baron Kelly and Norman Gilliland bring their words to life in an adaptation directed by Russell Vandenbroucke.
