FANWOOD, NJ -- The Fanwood Memorial Library presents Dear Ann Landers…, a fun, one-woman show starring Linda Turash on Sunday, April 2nd.
THE STORY: Late on a 1975 night in advice columnist Ann Landers' Chicago apartment, an ironic twist of events confronts her with a looming deadline for a column dealing with a new kind of heartbreak: her own. As she shares her struggles to complete the column with us, we learn as much about ourselves as we do about the wise, funny, no-nonsense woman whose daily dialog with America helped shape the social and sexual landscapes of the last half-century.
For decades, renowned advice columnist Ann Landers answered countless letters from lovelorn teens, confused couples and a multitude of others in need of advice. No topic was off-limits, including nude housekeeping, the proper way to hang toilet paper, sibling rivalries, addiction, religion and wandering spouses. Landers regaled her readers with direct, insightful and often humorously honest responses.
Dear Ann Landers… stars Scotch Plains native Linda Turash, who has been acting for over 30 years. Some of her favorite roles include Martha in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Eleanor in The Lion in Winter, and Miss Hannigan in Annie. Ms. Turash says she is pleased to be back in town, performing at the Fanwood Library.
The Fanwood library offers Dear Ann Landers… as part of its First Sundays series. These free family programs run the first Sunday of each month and are sponsored by the Friends of the Fanwood Memorial Library.+
