Elise Dewsberry, a versatile and commanding actress—-but even her ample abilities are severely tested whipping back and forth between dueling characters!
What I didn't like
The script, which shows the end of the story and only hints at how it reached that point and the other facets of the central character.
My overall impression
Truth in Advertising is taking a beating in the shows I’ve chosen to see at this year’s Fringe! This untapped bio of the woman credited with creating Mother’s Day was advertised at NINETY (90) minutes but stopped at THIRTY-THREE (33) minutes—-and still seemed long for an underdeveloped anecdote! Elise Dewsberry does as well as anyone can playing both characters in a duel of wits (mother & daughter, PLUS President Woodrow Wilson) but the play would be better served with a 2nd actress playing the 2nd character PLUS standby male support as the period POTUS. A single rich costume gets overworked covering all the characters, female and male! The p.d. “song score” is tepid, at best.
