This play depicts the complex personal and political life of the late Texas congresswoman Barbara Jordan, following her rise from a Houston ghetto through her pivotal role in Nixon's impeachment, to her struggle with multiple sclerosis. It examines the tension between ideals and pragmatism in the political realm, and asks how much one can compromise in order to effect change?
