Mrs. Smith Goes To Washington — One Woman Play

(Courtesy of Jeff Soifer. Used by Permission)

An Evening with Senator Margaret Chase Smith by Linda Britt

(Perfect for professional, amateur and educational production.)

This wonderful  show is all about Maine’s long-time Representative and Senator.  A powerful, funny, timely take on politics in a polarized era.  Senator Margaret Chase Smith, a woman of firsts, from her election to both houses of Congress, to speaking out against Joe McCarthy, to her nomination for President at a national convention, comes back when we need her most.
