Iconic, heroic and hilarious, Texas Governor Ann Richards had a heart as big as the state from which she hailed, a wit to rival the greats, and an enduring passion for fair play. Neither partisan nor political, Ann is pure entertainment — an uplifting tribute to this courageous leader, dedicated mother, loving grandmother and legendary personality. Researched, written and performed by Emmy Award-winner Holland Taylor (The Practice, Legally Blonde and Two and a Half Men), whose unforgettable performance the New York Times called “frank, funny and warm…a FIERY DYNAMO,” this richly imagined play reveals a complex, colorful and captivating character whose capacity to inspire us all burns even brighter today.

Jamaica Farewell returns to the Santa Monica Playhouse after successful runs all over the world. Debra Ehrhardt’s solo show is based on the mostly true story of her journey to the U.S. from Jamaica in the turbulent 1970s. As an 18-year-old secretary in Kingston, Ehrhardt bumped into a handsome CIA agent over a bowl of oxtail soup. She jumps on this chance opportunity and begins her escape to the U.S. with the help of the lovestruck American. Her way out of Jamaica is blocked by many obstacles: an alcoholic father, a Bible-spouting mother, the price of airfare, and U.S. government suspicions. Nevertheless, she begins a dangerous adventure that only the single-minded passion of a teenage girl would chance. The line between bravery and foolishness becomes blurred as she grows more desperate. When she agrees to smuggle a million dollars in cash to a mysterious contact somewhere in Miami, the agent becomes her unwitting accomplice. Every part is played by NAACP Award winner Ehrhardt, an actress capable of amazing mimicry. This one-woman caper’s got generous dollops of humor, laughter and light and has been optioned for film by a major Hollywood producer.
