March 23rd & 24th at 7pm at HCA in the upstairs gallery.
A play about Mary Colter, the foremost architect of the Southwest Featured in the title role is Elizabeth Ware, a professional actress well known for her solo performances. Ms. Ware and her husband, David Edgecombe, conceived, wrote and produced this 70-minute one-act play. They bring a unique perspective to this timeless story of a woman struggling to establish herself in the male-dominated world of early twentieth century architecture. As the chief architect and designer for the Fred Harvey Company, Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter was responsible for La Posada and most of the buildings that dot the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Her work is now viewed as pivotal in the development of Southwestern architectural design. The production features slides of her major works and gives insight into a turbulent artistic life.
