The Lincoln Debate

Event Details

The Palm Springs Cultural Center and The Bent present The Lincoln Debate: A New Play by Terry Ray on December 14 and 21, 2022.

The Coachella Valley’s brand new LGBTQ theater company, The Bent, is pleased to announce the world premiere of THE LINCOLN DEBATE by Terry Ray, the playwright of ELECTRICITY, the record-breaking longest running play in Palm Springs. Steve Rosenbaum will direct.

THE LINCOLN DEBATE takes a funny, touching and historically honest look at the relationship between Abraham Lincoln and Joshua Speed, a man he shared a bed with for four years. Did they have an intimate relationship? Did one of the greatest men in American history have a letter under the LGBTQ banner that fit him? You will leave THE LINCOLN DEBATE armed to draw your own conclusions.

THE LINCOLN DEBATE is a joint production of The Bent and the Palm Springs Cultural Center as the Cultural Center brings quality live productions into their newly remodeled theater spaces.
