An intimate, brash, and feisty portrait of Ann Richards, legendary Governor of Texas
Written by award-winning actress and writer Holland Taylor, Ann is an inspiring and hilarious play that brings us face to face with the complex, colorful, and captivating character bigger than the state from which she hailed. Performed by Emmy Award-winner Jayne Atkinson (“House of Cards,” "Madam Secretary”), Ann takes a revealing look at the impassioned woman who enriched the lives of her followers, friends, and family.
“…fiery, salty and brash!” - The New York Times
“…fun and engaging… marinated in Texas wryness… Ann wants you to savor the wit of this up-by-the-bootstraps politico, who began… as an adoring wife and mother and reinvented herself by entering politics and ascending the ladder…”- The Washington Post
Ann is a co-production with WAM Theatre
