Starring Jaybe Atkinson

Written by award-winning actress and writer Holland Taylor (“Two and a Half Men”), Ann is an intimate, no-holds-barred portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary late Governor of Texas. This inspiring and hilarious play brings us face to face with a complex, colorful, and captivating character bigger than the state from which she hailed. Performed by Emmy Award-winner Jayne Atkinson (TV’s “House of Cards”, “Madam Secretary”), Ann takes a revealing look at the impassioned woman who enriched the lives of her followers, friends, and family.

“…fiery, salty and brash!” – The New York Times

“…fun and engaging… marinated in Texas wryness… Ann wants you to savor the wit of this up-by-the-bootstraps politico, who began… as an adoring wife and mother and reinvented herself by entering politics and ascending the ladder…” - The Washington Post

“…an affectionate portrayal that celebrates [Ann’s] wit, determination and homespun values” – VARIETY

“Taylor weaves a lifetime of Ann Richards into a hilarious, introspective history of a woman who was ‘strong as mustard gas.’” – Huffington Post
