  • "Regarded as one of the most significant literary figures of his era, American historical novelist Winston Churchill helmed the school of literary naturalism in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. The spellbinding novel The Crisis focuses on the events leading up to the outbreak of the Civil War. The story takes as its center the Brice family of Missouri, which is torn apart by a complex web of loyalties to those on both sides of the battle."@en
  • "Story of the American Civil War; its hero on the side of the Northern forces, and its heroine belonging to the South."@en

  • "Missouri was in a delicate position in the years leading up to the Civil War. The state had been forged by two streams of immigrants, one from the north and one from the south. As a result, half was in favor of slavery, and half was against it. When the Civil War finally broke out, the state had a star on the flag of both sides. The story is set initially in St. Louis where Stephen Brice arrives to work at a prestigious law firm. He quickly makes a name for himself and falls in love with Virginia Carvel, a young lady whose family is deeply Southern. After meeting Abraham Lincoln, he becomes convinced that no country can exist half-slave and half-free. He soon becomes an abolitionist. When the shots were fired at Fort Sumter in 1861, both Stephen Brice and Virginia Carvel must choose their sides."@en

Hackett produces Winston Churchill's "The Crisis," a new play especially prepared for the stage from the clebrated novel by the author himself. Scenery by Arthur Voegtlin and William Camph.

  • "The Crisis is a romance set amidst the turmoil of the American Civil War. The divisions that threatened to tear apart the country prior to the Civil War were nowhere more apparent than in St. Louis. On the border between North and South, civilization and the frontier, it was host to passionate sympathizers on both sides of the slavery issue. When a young abolitionist lawyer falls for the daughter of a Southern gentleman, the turbulent political atmosphere creates a seemingly impossible barrier. Can a meeting with Abraham Lincoln change everything? A meticulously-researched work, filled with real historical figures, The Crisis is a gripping read for history buffs and romantics alike. -- Cover"
