Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Drama / Character: 1f

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.

"Red Hot Patriot is an inspiring piece of theater." -Broad Street Review

"A memorable portrait of a crusading journalist who broke gender barriers to establish herself as one of the nation's most influential and compassionate political columnists."
