MARTHA MITCHELL CALLING

“The men of this administration have forgotten that one person in possession of the truth and willing to talk can bring the whole show to an end.” – Eric Sevareid

There has never been a more important time in the course of our country’s political well-being than today. We urge all of you to vote this November in the Presidential elections to stand up and be counted!

Portrayed with humor, candor, and disarming pathos, this riveting work re-examines the life and legacy of Martha Mitchell. Outrageous, flamboyant, courageous, and the life of the party, she ultimately played the pivotal role in the downfall of Nixon’s Presidency. A southern debutante who dreamt of fame, her marriage to John Mitchell was a love story come true – until she discovered the Watergate conspiracy and had to choose between patriotism and personal happiness. The personal cost was tragic and she faded away to a forgotten end. Join Martha as she brings us back to the era of the secrets of H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman, and her husband, Attorney General John Mitchell, who subverted the law and put our liberty in jeopardy. Witness the truth as seen through Martha’s eyes and told through the voice of the woman who blew the whistle on the conspiracies going on in the shadows of the Nixon White House. Is today yesterday?

Talkback hosted by Allyn Burrows Sunday, November 1. All are welcome! REGISTER HERE!
