"Ordinary Americans are going to save us."
Molly Ivins

The unsinkable Molly Ivins, Austin's no-holds-barred newspaper columnist and best-selling author, is back to tell it like it is in a side-splittingly funny play. A true Texas original, Ivins was a sharp-tongued wit who skewered the "Lege" and the good ol' boys who ran it with her unforgettable humor and wisdom.

Written by twin journalist sisters, Margaret and Allison Engel, and starring The Austin Chronicle's Readers' Poll Favorite Actress Barbara Chisholm and directed by award-winning Broadway director David Esbjornson, Red Hot Patriot celebrates Molly's courage and tenacity – even when a complacent America wasn't listening — in a play that is nothing short of kick ass.
