Rate this:
Lucy Marsden, 99 years old, scares and charms us as the widow of the American Civil War¿s last surviving soldier. His child bride and the mother of his nine children, she now lives alone, the survivor of the survivor. A born storyteller, a woman of passion and compassion, she finally confesses her own marriage as the secret history of War itself. The role of Lucy¿funny, irreverent, candid, and heartfelt¿offers the actress of any age a sampler for her every emotion and available skill. By the time her telling is complete, we feel the full terror and pity of the domestic life and the Civil War combined. Based on the classic best-selling novel, Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All, this one-woman aria for stage constitutes a new work of art¿fresh, humorous and terrifying. Oscar- and Tony-winner Ellen Burstyn created the role on Broadway.
