Edgewood College presents The Rail Splitter on February 23, 24, March 2, and 3, at 7:30 p.m. with an additional performance on March 3 at 2 p.m., in the Diane Ballweg Theatre, 1000 Edgewood College Dr. The Rail Splitter, by Rick Cleveland and directed by Audrey Lauren Wax, is a play about Abraham Lincoln -- except, really, it's not. This is not your grandfather's Abe Lincoln play. The story follows a group of college students and a writer as they attempt to write a play about the 16th president of the United States. The students begin with the best intentions but get incredibly -- and hilariously -- off-track. Their efforts go so wrong, so haywire, that the results are basically disastrous. The more they dig up, the more ridiculous their ideas become. Cleveland wrote this to show just how far people can get from a starting point. It's a satire of the docudrama genre. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $8 for students/seniors. To purchase tickets visit http://theatre.edgewood.edu
