The poetic essence of Mary and her confinement at Bellevue Place.

Smart, Temperamental, Extravagant, 
and an Ardent Spiritualist 
Mary Todd Lincoln redefined what it meant to be a First Lady ... and landed up in asylum
Myra Bradwell got her out.
 Mary and Myra by Catherine Filloux
October 28 - November 12
In the summer of 1875, Mary Todd Lincoln (the President's widow) 
resides in an insane asylum, sent there by her only living son.  
Her progressive friend Myra Bradwell (America's first woman lawyer) 
arrives to help Mary gain her release by exposing the injustices of her trial.  
But Myra's motives and Mary's sanity are both up for debate, 
as they grapple with their pasts and their perceptions of 
freedom and womanhood.  
Featuring Tamara Howell and Teresa Sanderson.
Directed by Fran Pruyn
