An Indomitable Icon

Written by Holland Taylor
Directed by Kristen Van Ginhoven
In Association with Dallas Theater Center
“Deeply affectionate ... clever tribute”
Punchline-packed speeches reveal the feisty and unadulterated life of legendary Texas Governor Ann Richards. Written by Emmy Award-winning actress and writer Holland Taylor (The Practice, Two and a Half Men), Ann is a comical and inspiring production based on the colorful and complex woman whose sense of humor was bigger than the state which she represented. Jayne Atkinson (House of Cards, Criminal Minds) reprises her well-received performance in this intimate, no-holds-barred comedy chronicling Richards’ legacy and how she was determined to make her mark on the world. “Frank, funny and warm” (New York Times), Ann is a captivating tribute to Richards’ life as an activist, politician and feminist champion.
Ann is generously sponsored by Decker Anstrom and Sherry Hiemstra.
