WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Written by Ruth Draper Featuring Annette Bening
A pioneer in 20th century drama, Ruth Draper was described as, "the greatest individual performer that America has ever given." Her uncanny ability, while alone on stage, to shift between many characters brought awe to actors, royalty and throngs of crowds for decades.
Four-time Academy Award nominee, two-time Golden Globe-winner, and a recipient of the Screen Actors Guild Award, Annette Bening returns to the Geffen Playhouse in this world premiere production!
Annette Bening makes Draper's timeless monologues her own — highlighting their continued influence on audiences and artists alike. Like Draper before her, Bening embraces and embodies these monologues in this tour-de-force premiere.
