ANN (The Ann Richards Play)

by Holland Taylor


directed by Dana Schultes

Our brassy blue governor Ann Richards is back and brought to vivid life in a tour-de-force one woman show. Ann is an inspiring and hilarious new play that brings you face to face with a complex, colorful, and captivating character bigger than the state from which she hailed. Take a break from the election season, and come sit a spell with one of politics’ most unforgettable characters.
