CullinanMoreAs described in Fine Arts magazine: In 1875, ten years after Lincolns tragic death, his widow was declared insane and upon petition of her son, Robert, was confined in the Bethlehem Place Sanitarium, Batavia, Illinois, for about a year.

Cullinan has set his play in the confines of this room and Mary Todd Lincoln recalls the incidents of her married life, far beyond the four walls that surround her. Cullinans treatment is masterly. The rear curtain is divided into panels and as the mind of the woman wanders her thoughts take form. These scenes flash on from time to time as Mrs. Lincolns wandering mind brings a new incident into focus. Always she is victimized- always each speaker is inimical in her deranged reasoning.In the second act another inmate imitates Lincoln at the doctors orders in an effort to quiet the widows mind.

And in the final act, when time is nearing for her discharge, Robert calls on his mother and promises her a speedy release.
