      Granny D: The Power of One

      “Granny D: The Power of One” is a play which portrays the efforts of one woman to draw attention to the need for campaign finance reform and her contention that money in politics had betrayed our representative democracy.

      The play chronicles the 1998 cross country walk, at age 89, by Doris “Granny D” Haddock, a lifelong New Hampshire activist, from Santa Monica, CA to Washington, D.C. The trek included crossing more than 1,000 miles of desert, climbing the Appalachian Range in blizzard conditions, and even skiing 100 miles after an historic snowfall made roadside walking impossible. Actress and playwright Dixie Tymitz brings Haddock and her legendary feat to life.

      The performance is sponsored by Concord-based Open Democracy. Open Democracy, initially founded by Haddock, is a non-partisan organization working to reduce the corrupting influence of money in politics to ensure an equal voice for all. Olivia Zink, Executive Director, said “The Power of One project is a legacy of ‘Granny D.’” We are continuing her work to restore democracy and ‘escort the bullhorns of big money from the room.’”

      Times and dates vary.
