An American Daughter
August 3 - August 21 | Main Stage
When the President of the United States nominates Dr. Lyssa Dent Hughes (Diane Davis) to the position of Surgeon General, the excavation of her past triggers a scandal that threatens her confirmation. As partisan politics play out, Lyssa’s deep personal relationships and impressive career trajectory hang in the balance. Evan Cabnet directs Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winner Wendy Wasserstein’s prescient 1997 play about the cost one woman pays when she dares to have it all.
An American Daughter runs 2 hours and 10 minutes, with one 15-minute intermission.
