Let Me Down EasyBook - 2018
"In this solo show constructed from verbatim interview transcripts, Anna Deavere Smith examines the miracle of human resilience through the lens of the national debate on health care. After collecting interviews with over 300 people on three continents, Smith creates an indelible gallery of 20 portraits--known and unknown, from a rodeo bull rider, a prize fighter, to a New Orleans doctor during Hurricane Katrina, as well as former Texas Governor Ann Richards, cyclist Lance Armstrong, film critic Joel Siegel, and supermodel Lauren Hutton. It renders laughter and tears--a work of emotional brilliance and political substance from one of the treasures of the American theater. Originally created as a one person show, the author encourages multi-actor productions of the play."--Dramatists Play Service website.
