Redshaw’s one-act plays in spotlight at OTA in March

“A Conversation with Hattie McDaniel” and “Hazel Speaks!” — two one-act plays written, produced and directed by Rebecca Redshaw — is set for 7:30 p.m. March 9-10, and 2 p.m. March 11, at the Olympic Theatre Arts’ Caldwell Main Stage, 414 N. Sequim Ave.

McDaniel, best known for her Academy Award winning performance in “Gone with the Wind,” fought racism in Hollywood but also with leaders of the NAACP. Wolf was raised on the Olympic Peninsula and created positive changes not only in Seattle and the Northwest, but across the United States as a major force in establishing ecology protections and the Audubon society.

The event helps celebrate International Women’s Month (March).

Also noteworthy, Redshaw says, is the local talent that will participate in the performances. Half live in Sequim, half in Port Angeles. Represented are woman of color (African-American and Native American), straight and gay, divorced and married with children and single without children, seniors as well as women way below Social Security eligibility.

“These two women of different generations personify strength and determination,” Redshaw says. “Hattie and Hazel used intellect and humor to create change. Yes, it’s International Women’s Month, but men will enjoy these plays, too.”

Reserved seating tickets are $15. Get tickets online at, at the theater box office (1-5 p.m., Monday-Friday) or at the door, if available.
