A revival of VOICE OF GOOD HOPE by City Lit’s resident playwright Kristine Thatcher, currently Jeff-nominated for Best New Work for her play THE SAFE HOUSE, part of City Lit’s 39th season.  A dramatic portrait of Barbara Jordan, the first African American congresswoman to be elected from the Deep South.  The play follows Jordan from her childhood in Houston’s Fifth Ward through her receiving the Medal of Freedom from President Bill Clinton, and deals with her pivotal role on the House Judiciary Committee during its hearings concerning the possible impeachment of President Richard Nixon, her complex political relationship with Texas power broker Robert Strauss, her struggle with muscular dystrophy, and her twenty-year relationship with Nancy Earl, her companion and occasional speechwriter, and ultimately her caregiver.  The play premiered at Victory Gardens Theater in 2000 and has been produced from New York to San Francisco in the years since then.
