Set The Stage

First Ladies and the Big White Lie is not just a play—it's a call to action. Staged in an afterlife above the White House, this gripping 90-minute drama brings together nine historic women to confront and wrestle with the most seismic events in recent American history—from Donald Trump's election to George Floyd's death to January 6th.

In 2020, one-third of eligible voters chose not to vote. 

As we approach the 2024 election, First Ladies and the Big White Lie acts as an artistic exploration and civic catalyst.

  • Organize a reading in your community.

  • Inspire Voter Participation.

  • Deepen engagement in democracy.
