Learn more about each of these new, student-created works after the jump!

Booth
To Win, To Kill, To Live

Description:
This historically based piece of theatre is themed on the Lincoln assassination. It takes the audience through the leading up to (to win), day of (to kill), and fall-out (to live) from the perspective of the infamous John Wilkes Booth. The dramatic retelling of what happened in the presidential booth of Ford’s Theatre is interactive and immersive: the audience will experience the three parts separately, and not necessarily linearly, as they follow a prescribed object through scenes. Directed by Mia Vera.
