Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) —
Just in time for the 2012 election campaign, L.A. Theatre Works returns to Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) with its acclaimed radio-theater production of 'The Rivalry'.
This riveting performance, sponsored by the Student Government Association (SGA), will be held on Tuesday, January 31 at 7 p.m., in BRCC’s Magnolia Theater.
The Rivalry is a captivating depiction of the Lincoln-Douglas debates of 1858, which tackled the day’s most passionate issues of slavery, race, freedom, equality, states’ rights, and America ’s future.
Taken directly from the transcripts, The Rivalry recreates the face-0ff between Abraham Lincoln, rising Illinois legislator and abolitionist candidate of the newly formed Republican party, and Senator Stephen A. Douglas, the Democratic incumbent and champion of states' rights.
