Step through the doors of the White House dressing room and eavesdrop on a conversation between two women from very different worlds: First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln and her talented seamstress, Lizzy Keckly, a freed slave and successful businesswoman. Alternately bantering and sharing intimacies as Mary dresses for the theater, neither knows that this trip will change their lives and the world as they know it. As one woman’s skilled hands create beautiful garments, the other’s reality continues to slip further from her grasp. The regional premiere of MARY T. & LIZZY K. by Tazewell Thompson and directed by Richard Cook.
