The Rail Splitter
 by Rick Cleveland
Directed by Audrey Lauren Wax 
 
The Rail Splitter is a play about Abraham Lincoln — except, really, it’s not. An uproarious satire of the docudrama genre, Cleveland’s new play explores the twisting of facts as a group of college students attempt to write a play about the 16th president. The students begin with the best intentions but their efforts go incredibly — and hilariously — haywire. The more they dig up, the more ridiculous their ideas become!
