DALLAS (April 4, 2018) – Margo Jones is coming home. In this world premiere, written by Ana Hagedorn, Let Me Talk My Dreams introduces audiences to Margo, the real life Dallas-based theatre legend and innovator. This one-woman show uses Margo’s own words and those of her loved ones to illuminate her passion, rigor, humor, and tornado-like energy. This engaging and interactive experience will give audiences a dynamic account of how Jones shaped Dallas theatrical history, as well as the history of theatre in America, all while witnessing the private struggles she hid behind her invincible smile. “Margo is someone who, to this day, can put you under her spell, and that’s exactly what happened to me,” says Hagedorn, who started this project over a year ago.

“In the 1940s, she dared to start a movement. She dared to dream big. She dared to put her dreams into action. And now more than ever, it’s important to hear about a powerful woman leading a groundbreaking theatre especially when the ratio of women to men in prominent leadership positions in American theatre is still far from balanced.” Hagedorn knew that Margo’s story had to be told. Better yet, Let Me Talk My Dreams premieres in the place where it all started, Margo Jones Theatre in Fair Park. Hagedorn aims to “give audiences an experience to meet and understand this strong, innovating, confident yet lonely, heartbroken and imperfect woman and hopes it will inspire more people to put their dreams into action.”

In addition to writing Let Me Talk My Dreams, Hagedorn, a soon-to-be graduate of Southern Methodist University Meadows School of the Arts Masters in Acting program, will also be playing the role of Margo. Filling out the creative team is Amelia Bransky (DTC: Frankenstein; STT: Empathitrax) designing sets and costumes, and Jocelyn Girigorie (WaterTower: Hit the Wall; Stage West: A Funny Thing…New York City; SMU: Alcina) designing lights. Josh Kumler, of the inspired local politics show Bar Politics, will direct.
