ANN

by Holland Taylor

with Jacqueline Jones

directed by Billy Christopher Maupin

Wed Sept 16 - Sun Oct 25, 2020

​Just in time for what's probably the most important election of our time, Firehouse Theatre is pleased to announce the Richmond premiere of Holland Taylor's ANN. The one-woman show features Jacqueline Jones in the role of Ann Richards, who was a revolutionary figure in American politics.

Holland Taylor's script is an in-depth, humorous, and affectionate portrait of Ann Richards. The play illustrates why Richards was a revolutionary figure in American politics. She was the first female Democratic governor of Texas and was a powerful voice in the pro-choice and women's rights movements. She came to national attention when she gave the keynote address at the 1988 Democratic Convention. Richards passed away in 2006 and is remembered for her sharp wit and her advocacy for the inclusion of underrepresented populations in governments, One of Richards' most passionate beliefs was that democracy depended on everyone voting and actively participating in manifesting the ideals of equality and justice for all.

Firehouse will continue its practice of contactless theatre for the run of ANN that it established during the first production of our 2020-21 season -- a solo performance of THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY. Performances of ANN will be limited to 2, 4, 6, or 8 audience members at each show, and select performances will be live-streamed.
