WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Outspoken, outrageous, flamboyant, courageous, the life of the party and of the Party, Martha Mitchell was a devoted Republican and a loyal and passionate wife, until she decided to serve her country by telling the truth. Martha Mitchell Calling revisits the complex, controversial woman who blew the whistle, blew up her marriage, helped bring down a presidency, and paid dearly for her candor. Spoken by Martha Mitchell, this courageous and often hilarious tale follows her journey over the course of two-years as she attempts to reveal the truth while her husband, former Attorney General John Mitchell, stands trial for Watergate crimes. Following Martha's steadfast footsteps is No Background Music. This one-woman performance, created from the true stories of Vietnam army nurse Penny Rock, explores a poignant and often painful journey through battle and beyond. From the opening breath to the final line, this trenchant, heart and gut wrenching original work will make you think, react and question many of the decisions being made today - reminding you why involvement in the history happening around us is more important than ever before. This is an emotionally charged tour de force, with a voice that rings true, because it is true. VARIATIONS TO THE REGULAR SCHEDULE There are no performances on Thursday, August 3 or on Tuesday, August 29. Two additional performances are scheduled for: Friday, August 4 at 8:00 PM, and Saturday, September 2 at 10:30 AM
