Determination, Drama, and Daring: The Life of Louise Wooster

Birmingham “madam” and humanitarian Louise Wooster lived a life unimaginable for her day, complete with tragedy, comedy and her infamous dalliance with John Wilkes Booth. Referencing Birmingham’s rough and tumble early days, this one woman show presents Wooster as she promotes herself, leaving the audience to decide what was fact, fiction or fantasy. Join playwright and actress Ellise Mayor in this production, drawn from archival research and Wooster’s The Autobiography of a Magdalen.

In partnership with UAB School of Public Health.

Purchase tickets here.
