An American Daughter

by | Feb 27, 2020 | What’s Happening

March 13– April 5, Little Theater of Virginia Beach

Little Theater of Virginia Beach is performing An American Daughter by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning author, Wendy Wasserstein. Dr. Lyssa Hughes seemingly has it all, including the President’s nomination for Surgeon General. Viewed as a safe choice until an offhand remark opens her up to a firestorm of scrutiny, she is painfully reminded of the dizzyingly high standards women are held to. As her family and friends rally around her, Lyssa must decide if the well-deserved honor is worth the cost.

Wendy Wasserstein’s thought-provoking play deals with politics, betrayal, family, and love. For tickets and information, go to
