Tickets are now on sale for an eight-performance run of the Lincoln drama "The Heavens Are Hung in Black", a two-act drama by James Still, playing Thursday, November 8 through Sunday, November 11 and Thursday, November 15 through Sunday, November 18. The drama will be performed in the Union Theatre of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum, 212 N. Sixth Street in downtown Springfield.

The large-cast drama takes place 150 years ago, during several months in 1826 as the Civil War rages on and President Lincoln prepares to write what will become the Emancipation Proclamation. Richard "Fritz" Klein, renowned for his portrayal of Lincoln around the country, will play the Preisdent in the large-cast production.
