A new musical about Lincoln's assassin's brother. Edwin Booth was more famous than John Wilkes until the whole assassination thing. Set in the nether-world between life and death, Edwin's trying to wake up after a stroke, to get back to his beloved daughter. The only thing in his way? One of history's most hated madmen, his little brother.

"The Rare Biosphere" by Chris Cragin Day tells the story of Sophie, a bright Honduran-American teenager who comes home from high school to find that her parents have been deported. She immediately goes into bunker-down survival mode, trying to care for her younger siblings without raising suspicion and considering her next move. Her plan is complicated by a well-meaning high school friend who, in a series of attempts to ask her out, discovers her secret.

We have the incredible opportunity to bring this story to the stage for its World Premiere in the Spring of 2019. Sea Dog Theater’s mission is to tell stories that address questions of alienation and reconciliation because we believe that great theater offers us opportunities in paying attention and cultivating compassion. In a cultural moment such as this, where humans are increasingly alienated and misunderstood, we feel obligated to bring Sophie's all-too-common story to life. 

With half of our budget raised so far, we hope you'll consider joining us in this endeavor! Make a tax-deductible donation below and sign up for our mailing list to get the latest updates on "The Rare Biosphere".
