With Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins audiences will be treated to the wit and wisdom of a true original. Barbara Bradshaw will star as the unsinkable, unstoppable Molly Ivins. The 'dyed-in-the-wool liberal from deep in the heart of Texas', famously brassy newspaper columnist and best-selling author was a crusading journalist who broke gender barriers with her sharp-tongued wit, humor, and political savvy to establish herself as one of the nation's most influential political columnists. Written by twin sisters Margaret and Allison Engel, the play is a true tribute to Ivin's wit, sense of humor, and love of irony. The script also delves into Ivins' life to reveal what drove her from a comfortable upper- class upbringing and education to the good-ole-boy, hard-drinking world of journalism and political warfare. Red Hot Patriot seamlessly weaves personal anecdotes with a sharp and clever look at one of our favorite national pastimes - politics.
