Historical Performance - Biographical Interpretation

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.
