Leo has more on his plate than he can handle: he is a speechwriter in the final month of campaign for an endangered mediocre Congressman; his new boss Carla is a dominating message maven who has been brought in from the corporate world to try and save the campaign; and his brother Francis is a psychiatric outpatient recently released from St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, despite having a powerful delusion that he is Abraham Lincoln. Desperate for inspiration, Leo turns to Francis for help writing “lincolnesque” speeches, transformative oratory inspired by Lincoln that ultimately revive his boss’s flagging re-election campaign.  LINCOLNESQUE is a pleasing political fantasy that touches the heart and the funny bone.
