    History buffs will adore galore. There just isn't a better way to bring these great figures to life. I knew nothing about Grace Hopper but now I'm glad I do. Thank you!

    A marvelous monologue about a woman inventor most people don't know about. With humor and insight on endurance, persistence and making a difference, O'Grady has created a compelling portrait of an American original. After this, you definitely want to be an expert like Grace Hopper on 'quietly controlled bitchiness'. Highly recommend for solo festivals.
