An American Daughter

By Wendy Wasserstein
Tom Mitchell, director

In this work set in contemporary Washington, DC, Dr. Lyssa Hughes—a descendent of Ulysses S. Grant—is being considered for the post of Surgeon General of the United States. In the 21st century, a woman’s progress in politics is fraught with challenge. The late playwright Wendy Wasserstein humanizes the political, creating an intelligent play that also bursts with humor and hurt.
