This one-woman show is adapted by Hailey from her book, which became a bestselling sensation when it was first published in 1978 and the inspiration for the TV miniseries starring Sally Field. At the turn of the century, a time when women had few choices, Bess Steed Garner inherits a legacy, not only of wealth, but also of determination, making her truly a woman of independent means. In a series of letters from the early 1900s through the 1960s, we accompany Bess as she courageously endures the sacrifices love sometimes requires of the heart, the flaws and rewards of marriage, the often-tested bond between mother and child, and the will to defy a society that demands conformity.
This exciting collaboration with Mill Mountain Theatre features professional actress Stephanie Wahl under the direction of MMT's new artistic director, Scott Treadway.
