Granny D: The Power of One

On December 31st, 1998, 88-year old Doris Haddock, known affectionately as “Granny D”, set out to walk across America from a Santa Monica beach in California to Washington, D.C. She undertook this feat in order to draw attention to the need for national campaign finance reform and because she believed that money in politics had betrayed our democracy. She trekked over 1,000 miles of desert, climbed the Appalachian Range in blizzard conditions and even skied 100 miles after a historic snowfall made roadside walking impossible. As much as any soldier on the battlefield, she was willing to give her life for her country’s highest ideals. Actress Dixie Tymitz portrays the character of Granny D and her incredible journey in this informative one-woman play. Free and open to all.
