'Mrs. Lincoln' to open
Placeholder Image
FREEPORT - The Winneshiek Players, in correlation with the sesquicentennial celebration, will be performing "Mrs. Lincoln," written by Thomas Cullinan, and directed by Lynn Jones. Ten years after Lincoln's tragic death, his widow, Mary Todd Lincoln, was confined to the Bethlehem Place Sanitarium in Batavia, Ill. The play, set within the confines of her single room, recalls the incidents of her married life, far beyond the four walls that surround her and what has become of her wandering mind.
