Thursday will mark the 206th year since Abraham Lincoln was born.  Ken Bradbury, a prolific Illinois playwright, wrote a one-man, one-act play called 'The Last Full Measure' about what Lincoln may have been thinking in the moments after he was assassinated. NPR Illinois was joined in The Suggs Performance Studio by Fritz Klein, world-renowned Lincoln actor, as well as Bradbury and the director Phil Funkenbusch. All three joined the audience after the performance for a Q & A session.
