First Ladies tell all in TEA FOR THREE in theotherspace, September 20 – October 5

Tea for Three

What is it like for a woman when her husband becomes the President of the United States, and she is suddenly thrust into the spotlight?

Witty, sly and deeply moving, TEA FOR THREE — opening upstairs in theotherspace at the Roxy Regional Theatre on Monday, September 20, at 7:00pm — explores the hopes, fears and loves of Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford.

In keeping with the theatre’s pay-what-you-can opening night tradition, all tickets not pre-sold at the regular price will go on sale at 6:30pm September 20 for a $5 minimum donation.

In three scenes taking place in the family quarters of the White House just prior to the end of living there as the wife of a president, each of the women (played by Yarissa Tiara Millan, Sara Anderson and Kelsey McCollaum) confides alone to the audience. Secrets are spilled about their early years, their husbands’ rise to power, their romances with the men, their unique paths as wives in the White House, and their feelings about imminent retirement. Each of the three portraits becomes intimate, by degrees, as the women wrestle with what Pat Nixon called “the hardest unpaid job in the world.”

Directed by Ryan Bowie and written by Eric H. Weinberger and Elaine Bromka, TEA FOR THREE is presented through special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois,

TEA FOR THREE is presented in theotherspace, the 50-seat black-box theatre located upstairs at the Roxy Regional Theatre. Performances run September 20 through October 5 on Mondays and Tuesdays at 7:00pm.
