Kaiulani Lee’s Can’t Scare Me

Lee mother jones 2Mother Jones is brought to life in this one woman play by Obie Award winner, Kaiulani Lee. The play is drawn from Mother Jones’s autobiography, her letters, speeches, interviews and transcripts.

“Lee, a skilled performer, brings both gentleness and steel to her Mother Jones…The play engages our emotions and intellect, a tribute to writer/actress Lee and her subject…a tart and handsomely wraught solo show.”
The Washington Post

“Can’t Scare Me is quite simply the best one-person show we’ve seen in many a year…the production is elegant and polished to the last detail…Lee’s physical appearance is the very embodiment of Mother Jones…It is an awesome performance, a phenomenal realization of a bigger-than-life historical character, impressive where you’re on the side of labor unions or not”
