Austin Playhouse presents Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins by Margaret Engel and Allison Engel, starring Austin Playhouse company member Cyndi Williams as the notorious journalist. The play captures the reporter’s unflinching character by weaving personal anecdotes with her colorful take on national politics.

Texan political journalist Molly Ivins was the author of Bushwacked, an in-depth analysis of the George W. Bush Administration. She began her journalism career in 1967 at the Minneapolis Tribune, where she became the first female police reporter at the paper. She then became editor of the liberal biweekly magazine The Texas Observer in the early 1970s. From there, Ivins worked at the New York Times from 1976-1982 before spending 10 years with the Dallas Times Herald. Ivins became the most widely read self-proclaimed “pain the ass to whatever powers come to be.”

Following each performance will be a live Q&A with Williams.
