Red Hot Patriot: the kick-ass wit of Molly Ivins

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The story of the unsinkable Molly Ivins, the famously brassy newspaper columnist and best-selling author. A true Texas original, Ivins was a sharp-tongued wit who skewered the political establishment and the "good ol' boys" with her unforgettable humor and wisdom. Written by twin sisters, themselves longtime journalists, the play celebrates Ivins' courage and tenacity – even when a complacent America wasn't listening. Runtime: 75 minutes

Molly Ivins: Lucinda Gainey (solo performer)
Copy Kid: Christopher McBennett (non-speaking role and technician)
