Tacoma Little Theatre presents Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington by Linda Britt, on Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 7:30pm.  This production will be directed by Ellen Peters and stars Kathi Aleman.

Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington tells the story of scrappy and smart Maine politician Margaret Chase Smith, who served as a role model for women aspiring to national politics. As the first woman to win election to both the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate, Smith cultivated a career as an independent and courageous legislator. A Republican, Senator Smith bravely denounced McCarthyism at a time when others feared speaking out would ruin their careers (

This short play will be followed by a panel discussion with State Senator Jeannie Darneille, Tacoma City Councilmember Lauren Walker Lee, Playwright Linda Britt, and University of Puget Sound Associate Professor of Politics and Government Robin Jacobson. They will address questions related to speaking truth to power, the role of women in politics, and the historical impact of the McCarthy era.

Tickets for the April 27, 2017 performance at 7:30pm are $10.00 for non TLT Members, and FREE for those who are members. Tickets may be purchased online at, or by calling our Box Office at (253) 272-2281.
