    Backwards and in High Heels

    With a personality as big as the state she governed, Ann Richards shattered the "good ole boys network" and changed the face of politics forever. Rising to national prominence with her keynote address at the 1988 Democratic Convention, she famously described George Bush as having been born "with a silver foot in his mouth." Channeling this fiery and irascible spirit, Joan Martin Burke's one woman play is brought vividly...

    With a personality as big as the state she governed, Ann Richards shattered the "good ole boys network" and changed the face of politics forever. Rising to national prominence with her keynote address at the 1988 Democratic Convention, she famously described George Bush as having been born "with a silver foot in his mouth." Channeling this fiery and irascible spirit, Joan Martin Burke's one woman play is brought vividly to life by the multifaceted WSTC member Lisa Foley who captures the remarkable contrast of her public bravado with her private pain. From her struggle with alcoholism to her failed marriage and her losing battle with cancer, the play explores with the same candor and humor that was her trademark, the vagaries of a life lived passionately and in the arena.
