Go Granny D Play at Merrimack Library

Barbara Bates Smith and Jeff Sebens perform the play "Go, Granny D!". Free and open to the public.

The Monterey Weekly sums it up:
Never underestimate grannies. At age 90 Doris "Granny D" Haddock blazed a 3200-mile trail across America for campaign finance reform, precipitating the passage of the McCain-Feingold Act. She continued her bipartisan reform efforts in countrywide voter registration drives, issuing her final challenge in 2010 at age 100: "Democracy is a running game. You huddle and you go back in. You keep going."   
        
Off-Broadway actress Barbara Bates Smith and musician Jeff Sebens highlight the story of this crusader whose steel determination took the world by surprise and elevated her to national fame. Smith summons the granny with the straw hat proclaiming across the U.S. "Corporations are not people! Democracy is!"
