Lovers by Brian Friel

The Copperhead by Augustus E. Thomas
Part of an ambitious new five-year project to which the company has committed. 2011-2015 will mark the sesquicentennial years of the Civil War. To commemorate this historic event, City Lit has decided to offer one Civil War-themed play each season for the next five seasons. In The Copperhead, an Illinois gentleman who is hiding dark secret is condemned as a 'copperhead' (slang during the Civil War for a northerner sympathetic to the southern cause). The original production opened on Broadway in 1918 and made a star of Lionel Barrymore!
