Hatchet Lady: Carry Nation, Angel of Destruction
written by Savannah Reich
music by Luc Parker
directed by John Heimbuch
Carry Nation splinters unsuspecting saloons with her mighty hatchet! She targets nothing less than the limits of society. The men would shut her down, but God calls her on, and her awesome legacy is one of inspiration, passion and determination. An unabashedly feminist rock musical! What do you have that needs to be smashed?

"Men of factious tempers, of local prejudices, or of sinister designs, may, by intrigue, by corruption, or by other means, first obtain the suffrages, and then betray the interests, of the people. The question resulting is, whether small or extensive republics are more favorable to the election of proper guardians of the public weal..."
- James Madison, Federalist No. 10
ABOUT THE SHOW
Want to watch the returns, but don't want to listen to the pundits? Put your favored network on mute, and play this in the background. From ancient China to the Enlightenment, from the American Revolution to the Civil War, award-winning storyteller phillip andrew bennett low will be reading excerpts from some of his favorite political speeches and essays, plays and poems.
Beginning at 5pm (when the first polls close in Indiana and Kentucky) and ending at 10pm (when polls close on the west coast), or when the performer collapses into the fetal position cradling a bottle of Jameson, whichever comes first. Celebration or consolation, here's a body of material carefully curated to provide comfort and context to a historic evening, with a guarantee of no text later than 1917.
PRAISE FOR PHILLIP LOW AND MAXIMUM VERBOSITY
"...a polished, charismatic performer..."
- Robert Trussell, Kansas City Star
"Low adopts a consistent style and vocal inflection for each character, and he has the kind of voice one could listen to almost indefinitely."
- Jay Harvey, Indianapolis Star
"...Low has a hell of an ear for language. Those are some downright beautiful sentences he's uttering up there...the guy gives good aural."
- Glen Weldon, Washington City Pages
"...his presence on stage, his careful pacing and his masterful storytelling combine for an interesting show..."
- Emily Gurnon, Pioneer Press
