The finale? Separated at Birth: The Lincoln/Darwin Plays, a compilation by the Theatre Company of Lafayette, which includes Monkey Men, a full-length play about the Piltdown Man hoax by local playwright Leroy Leonard, and Abe & Chuck: (Way) Off- Broadway, a serious and funny group of original short plays, some wild and silly, others sweet and touching. The companys Don Fried promises that both a good helping of historical correctness and a sprinkling of creative license will tie all the performances together for a thoughtful evening of educational entertainment.
