With wit, charm, and chutzpah, Ann Landers provided millions of Americans their daily dose of advice, etiquette, and encouragement. And for nearly half a century, one Eppie Lederer was Ann Landers. In this warm and funny one-woman play, drawn from her life and letters, Eppie comes to life on stage as she writes perhaps her most challenging—and personal—column.

Esther Pauline “Eppie” Lederer, better known as Ann Landers, took over the Chicago Sun-Times’s ‘Ask Ann Landers’ column in 1955 after the death of its creator, Ruth Crowley. During the next 47 years, readers across the country wrote to Ann with questions about everything from sex and marriage, to how to properly hang toilet paper. Questions you may not feel comfortable discussing with your priest, friends, or even your spouse could be shared with Ann Landers. Lederer also weighed in on the more complex issues of the day, including politics, abortion and homosexuality. She became a media celebrity, yet still answered every letter herself, as long as it had a return address, and her column was enjoyed by millions along with their morning cup of coffee. This 2006 one-woman show, written by David Rambo is set in 1975 and was based on Lederer’s letters and life stories.
