Stealing Lincoln

Written by Anne G’Fellers-Mason

Stealing Lincoln’s body isn’t as easy as it sounds.

It’s 1874, and Chicago’s biggest crime boss has just sent some of his best counterfeiters to steal Abraham Lincoln’s body and hold it for ransom. What could possibly go wrong?

CAST OF CHARACTERS

Mullen – counterfeiter, cocky, the ringleader

Hughes – counterfeiter, less cocky, the reluctant second

Swegles – the hired man, plays dumb exceedingly well, undercover

Brown – the other hired man, the strong silent type, also undercover

Officer – looks forward to the interesting days/cases (this is one of them)

Note on Casting:

Historically, Mullen and his group were all men, but these parts can be filled by any actor/actress. The parts are written to be played straight out, just as they are.
