The War Dept.;

Stage/Theater

Eugene O'Neill Theater Center, 305 Great Neck Road, Waterford, CT , 06385

The American Civil War has ended, but the task of cleaning up the mess – and trying to make sense of it all – has only just begun. That work falls in large part to the eccentric savant Private William T. Clarke working in an obscure and mysterious division of The War Department, sorting through mountains of records housed now in Ford’s Theater, dark since Lincoln’s assassination there three years before. Clarke, fighting demons of his own, finds his strange and insular domain invaded by three visitors in the same day, each looking desperately for something precious lost in the war. Unfortunately, Clarke may be the only person who can help them, and the war may not be over yet.
