Lynn Schrichte is a Washington, D.C., playwright and performer
who transformed manuscript materials from the Library of Congress
into a one-woman show on the famous actress Minnie Maddern Fiske
(1865-1932). Schrichte then turned to newspaper and magazine articles
to research the exciting life of world-circling journalist Nellie
Bly (1865-1922). Since 1995, she has toured the United States with
her two plays Mrs. Fiske: Against the Wind and Did You
Lie, Nellie Bly? She is both the author of and actor in each.
Schrichte began her professional acting and dancing career at age
fourteen and has appeared on television and in productions around
the country, including plays at the Studio, Roundhouse, Horizons,
and Source theaters.
