Mrs. John Marsh : The World Knew Her As Margaret Mitchell


 Proving it is possible for aura to emanate from words, the presence of Margaret Mitchell has been wonderfully resurrected in Melita Easters’ compelling one-woman theater piece, Mrs. John Marsh — The World Knew Her as Margaret Mitchell. The two-act play, grounded in careful research and vibrant with personality, is both compelling story-telling and revealing history. Melita Easters masterfully celebrates one of America’s most famous literary figures by giving her the spirit of life that gave us the book — Gone With the Wind.

 Most know of Atlanta’s favorite daughter role in penning Gone With the Wind, but few other details are commonly known of Margaret Mitchell.  This one woman play starring Kandace Christian and written by Melita Easters takes the audience from the her days as a student in 1919 to her postGone With the Wind success.

Christian showcases a style and grace that gives a convincing portrayal of  the full of life Margaret Mitchell.

Mixed in with actual Mitchell multimedia photo and video montage between scenes, this biographical tale will leave you with a deeper understanding of this legendary literary figure.
