Info

April 13 is the return of the one-act play One Destiny at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. It has been a year-and-a-half since the play was performed at the museum.

Written by Richard Hellesen, “One Destiny” is about two men coming to terms with the president’s assassination. One is Harry Hawk, the actor who was onstage when the bullet was fired, and the other is Harry Ford, manager of the theater where the crime took place. One Destiny premiered at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C., and is stilled performed there.

The play launches with performances at 1:30 in the afternoon on Saturday, Sunday and Monday in the museum’s Union Theater. It will continue to be performed throughout the summer.

The family-friendly play, sponsored by Chase Bank with support from Barbara Archer and R-Lou Barker, lasts 40 minutes. A question-and-answer session will take place afterwards. Tickets are free with a museum admission and are distributed beginning at 11:30 a.m.
