Recently we saw the stage play: Ann written and acted by the talented Holland Taylor.

Ann, was Ann Richards  (1933-2006) wildly popular governor of the state of Texas 1991-95. Ann rose from the ranks of home-maker to the states most powerful office.

This straight talking tiny lady with her heavy Texas accent was famous for speaking her mind. Considered by some as the queen of colloquialisms. She will forever be remembered   for her now famous remark about George H. Bush at the 1988 Democratic Convention. "George can't help it. He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth".

The play solely acted by Holland is an uncanny portrayal of the witty straight talking much loved politician..Worth seeing....even if you are not from Texas!
