THE SHOT: Staged Play Reading | March 15
Sunday, March 15, 2020 — 3:00 pm
Join award-winning actor and Ebell member Sharon Lawrence as she presents a reading of Robin Gerber’s new play, THE SHOT, about the iconic Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham, directed by Michelle Joyner and produced by Laurie Bernhard.
For more than 20 years, Katharine Graham was a self-described “doormat wife,” secretly enduring years of domestic abuse from her husband. After his suicide, she took over as publisher and CEO of the Washington Post where she defied the government by publishing the Pentagon Papers, took on Nixon in Watergate and stunned her male executives who had bet against her success.
Based on “Katharine Graham: The Leadership Journey of an American Icon”
