Ira David Wood
A haunting tale of family, history,
regrets and shame. The Booth family was America’s greatest acting
clan. Generations of Booth sons tread the boards of American stages
garnering great acclaim and riches until the youngest and arguably most
famous of them all, John Wilkes, turned the country upside down. Eight
years after the assassination of President Lincoln, Edwin Booth returns
to his family’s theatre in New York to sort through his younger
brother’s storage trunk which the government has recently returned.
Ghostly memories of his father and brother appear to him as he struggles
to rectify issues that have plagued his family name since that fateful
night at Ford’s Theater.
