The Lied Center presents the world premiere production of A House Divided, a new play by Christina Kirk. Based on real events, this compelling work examines the distressing choices faced by Abraham Lincoln that threatened to unravel his family and the country during a week in 1863 when Mary Todd Lincoln’s half-sister, Emilie Todd Helm, visits the White House. Helm, a fiercely loyal Confederate, refuses to pledge allegiance to the Union when trying to cross the border to return to Kentucky after her Confederate husband’s death in battle. Unsure of what else to do, Lincoln suggests the soldiers send her to the White House.
