Anna Cora Mowatt holds an important place in American theater history. She was the first woman to give public readings; she wrote the first social satire for the stage; and, having become a star overnight without previous acting experience, she was the first American to make the acting profession for women respectable--proving that a lady could be an actress and an actress a lady. Ages 12 up.
