It's the 1930s and things are gearing up for the next Presidential election. Lucy Chase Wayne, the granddaughter of a US President and wife of the Secretary of State, and Irene Hibbard, the wife of a Supreme Court Justice, both have their eyes on the prize. While powerful special interest groups, the media, and speech-making politicians engage in the rough campaign, romance makes an appearance.
There will be a post-performance discussion with Minnesota State Auditor Rebecca Otto about the role of women in politics after the Sunday, September 30 matinee performance.
Mary Cutler directs this production. Ticket prices are $19 for adults and $15 for students. The Sunday, September 30 performance will be “pay what you want”. If you are a LWVSP member who goes to the show and tells Lex-Ham Community Theater that you heard about the show through LWVSP, Lex.-Ham will make a donation back to LWVSP. We will also like have a presence at some of the shows.
