 In honor of Women's History Month actress, director, producer, teacher and playwright Jenny Aldrich will perform a must-see one-woman production on Lillian Hellman.
Lillian Hellman was a brilliant, passionate, provocative woman and an internationally acclaimed author who wrote Broadway hits and best-selling books. She was renowned as a political activist, a wit, an extraordinary hostess and a fabulous storyteller. Hellman came of age when young women began to smoke, drink and celebrate their sexual freedom. Rude, passionate, independent and eloquent, Hellman seduced men, women, audiences and critics. In an illustrious career spanning five decades, she won a permanent place in American Letters. In this intimate dramatic portrait, Hellman discusses her works, her life, her adventures, her politics and numerous love affairsóincluding 30-someyears with mystery writer Dashiell Hammettówith truth, lies and a delightful sense of fun.
