How Soft the Lining


  • Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA 527 Tremont St Boston, MA, 02116 United States

Inspired by the extraordinary relationship of Mary Todd Lincoln and Elizabeth Keckly, Mrs. Lincoln’s freed black seamstress, this play is the story of both women’s lives and the primary events that brought them together during a critical moment in our nation’s history. The mania often associated with Mrs. Lincoln has been etched away to reveal a friendship that is uniquely complicated and important. The people who were once on the fringe of Lincoln’s presidency take center stage through theatrical storytelling.  

Presented by Bad Habit Productions.
