"Writing plays is the way I connect with the world and follow ideas to their inevitable conclusion. Every play I write is a way to find out something about who or what I am and about the world I see around me—to find out if words can really ever 'get at what they are trying to say'."

Both Eyes Open: The Annie Oakley Story

Vermont actress Maura O'Brien brings to life the legendary Annie Oakley in a new play, written especially for her by Jeanne Beckwith.

Full of humor, heart-break, sharp wits, and white-knuckled determination, Oakley sets the record straight. Defying death at least three times,  this Little Sure Shot's determination saw her through from the poor farm to dining with Queens and Kings and blazing her own path all the while. And she always shot with both eyes open.
