The play takes play on June 30, 1975.  Ann Landers is on deadline.  She is faced with the task of writing the most difficult column of her career, and she doesn’t have a clue how to start it.

“The Lady with All the Answers” is a play written by David Rambo. Dramatists Play Publishing describes the play: “For decades, renowned advice columnist Ann Landers answered countless letters from  lovelorn teens, confused couples and a multitude of others in need of advice. No topic was off-limits, including nude  housekeeping, sex in a motorcycle helmet, the proper way to hang toilet paper, sibling rivalries, addiction, religion  and wandering spouses. Landers regaled her readers with direct, insightful and often humorously honest responses. Late on a 1975 night in Landers’ Chicago apartment, an ironic twist of events confronts her with a looming deadline for a column dealing with a new kind of heartbreak: her own. As she shares her struggles to complete the column with us, we learn as much about ourselves as we do about the wise, funny, no-nonsense woman whose daily dialogue with America helped shape the social and sexual landscapes of the last half-century.”

This is not a play for children, but adults will enjoy Ann Landers quick wit and candid observations about all the questions and problems of life and death too.

We hope that you will come and join us for this historical event.  Never before has the Richmond Community Theatre produced a one-woman show.  Come out and celebrate these wonderful women with us as they make some theatre history.  You are certain to enjoy, “The Lady with All the Answers.”
