The Loves of John Wilkes Booth

“The Lady, the Locket and the Loves of John Wilkes Booth,” an original play by Dr. Maria Boundas Bakalis of Curtain Up Classroom, weaves a mysterious tale surrounding a woman’s locket — a locket once presented to a lover from the infamous John Wilkes Booth, a name that evokes images of the mad man who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln.
