And now for today’s question, which comes to you from Gopal Kidao.
This is the poster for the last performance of Laura Keene, a famous Anglo-American actress. It was also a benefit night for her. The question has three parts to it. What was being performed? Where was the show held? And who was the special guest that night?
The three parts of the answer were (a) The play ‘Our American Cousin’ by Tom Taylor, (b) Ford’s Theatre, Washington and (c) Abraham Lincoln. This was the fateful night of his assassination.
34 of you took your best shots at the question and all of you hit the bullseye!
