“Lady Patriot” (published by Trafford Publishing) reveals an intimate look into the prejudices and patriotism of three ladies who lived during the Civil War, Varina Davis, Elizabeth Van Lew, and Mary Bowser. Combining his signature styles of comedy and drama, playwright Ted Lange, who garnered worldwide fame for his portrayal of Isaac Washington on television classic “The Love Boat,” brings the characters to life on the page.
Set in Richmond, Va. during the Civil War and based on a true story, Confederate president Jefferson Davis’s inner sanctum has been breached. Information is leaking to the enemy. Who is the spy? No one is privy to this information except Jefferson’s advisors, and they are beyond repute.
An excerpt from “Lady Patriot” Act I, Scene VII:
“OLD ROBERT: Mary answer me this. Why you want to read Massa Jeff’s private papers?
MARY: Old Robert, You know how white folks feel about darkies reading. If I open a book, I’m sure to get caught. If I glance at a paper and practice what I see, easier not to get caught.”
“Lady Patriot” is one of history’s untold stories, peeling away stereotypes prevalent in the South during the Confederacy and exposing the nature of slavery, its inhumanity, and how it entangled with economics and politics.
